    Claim Jumper is a restaurant chain headquartered in Irvine, California, USA, with 45 locations in Arizona, California, Illinois, Colorado, Nevada, Washington, Wisconsin, Oregon and Tennessee. Founder Craig Nickoloff opened the first Claim Jumper Restaurant in Los Alamitos, California in 1977. Until 2005, CWN Management, Inc., which operates the Claim Jumper chain, had been privately owned by the Nickoloff family. Leonard Green & Partners purchased a majority stake in the company in 2005 for a reported $200 million. The company filed for bankruptcy on September 10, 2010. On October 28, 2010, the chain was auctioned off with Landry's Restaurants being the winning bidder. Claim Jumper has licensed its name to frozen food producer American Pie, LLC to create a line of frozen dinners, which are sold in grocery stores. Claim Jumper has a program once a year called "Tip-A-Cop" which aids the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a day when sheriffs and children with disabilities help serve the guests, with all of the tips donated to the Special Olympics. The future of the various locations has yet to be announced.
