TOLEDO, Ohio -- The sale of an Ohio hot dog diner made famous on TV's "M*A*S*H" has fallen through, with the potential buyer saying he will not complete the $5.5 million deal because of bank-required changes.
Bob Bennett, owner of Bennett Management Corp. and TP Foods LLC, said his decision came after Fifth Third Bank required some last-minute changes.
The bank, which holds the loan to the chain, insisted on changes that included an increase in the loan interest rate, multiple media outlets reported. The bank declined to comment on the deal.
The diner was referenced in episodes of "M*A*S*H." Cross-dressing character Cpl. Max Klinger, portrayed by actor and Toledo native Jamie Farr, craved the hot dogs.
