Equity [Abstract]  
Reverse Recapitalization Disclosure
On July 14, 2021, the Merger between HMAN and Landcadia was consummated. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the closing date of the Merger, the outstanding shares of Old Hillman common stock were converted into 91,220,901 shares of New Hillman common stock as calculated pursuant to the Merger Agreement.
The Merger was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization, with no goodwill or other intangible assets recorded, in accordance with GAAP. Under this method of accounting, Landcadia is treated as the “acquired” company for financial reporting purposes. This determination was based primarily on Old Hillman having the ability to appoint a majority of the initial Board of the combined entity, Old Hillman's senior management comprising the majority of the senior management of the combined company, and the ongoing operations of Old Hillman comprising the ongoing operations of the combined company. Accordingly, for accounting purposes, the Merger was treated as the equivalent of New Hillman issuing shares for the net assets of Landcadia, accompanied by a recapitalization. The net assets of Landcadia were stated at carrying value. The historical statements of the combined entity prior to the Merger are presented as those of Old Hillman with the exception of the shares and par value of equity recast to reflect the exchange ratio on the Closing Date, adjusted on a retroactive basis. A summary of the impact of the reverse recapitalization on the cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, change in net assets and the change in common shares is included in the tables below.
