Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
The carrying amounts of the Company's cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and current accrued expenses and other liabilities approximate fair value due to the short term nature or maturity of the instruments.
The following tables present the Company's assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis included in Other assets, net on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as of October 4, 2020 and December 29, 2019 (in thousands):
Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
Assets and liabilities recognized or disclosed at fair value on the condensed consolidated financial statements on a nonrecurring basis include items such as property, plant and equipment, right of use assets, goodwill, and other intangible assets. These assets are measured at fair value if determined to be impaired.
The Company has measured non-financial assets for impairment using continuing and projected future cash flows, which were based on significant inputs not observable in the market and thus represented a level 3 fair value measurement. Based on our restaurant asset impairment analyses during fiscal year 2020, we impaired long-lived assets at 36 Company-owned restaurants with carrying values of $61.4 million. We determined the fair value of these long-lived restaurant assets to be $34.9 million. During fiscal year 2019, we impaired long-lived assets at 29 Company-owned restaurants with carrying values of $17.3 million. We determined the fair value of these long-lived restaurant assets to be $2.2 million.
Disclosures of Fair Value of Other Assets and Liabilities
The Company's liability under its credit facility is carried at historical cost in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Due to market interest rates decreasing during fiscal year 2020, the Company determined the carrying value of the liability under its credit facility did not approximate fair value. The carrying value and fair value of the credit facility as of October 4, 2020 were $215.2 million and $218.6 million. As of December 29, 2019, the carrying value of the credit facility approximated fair value as the interest rate on the instrument approximated current market rates. The interest rate on the credit facility represents a level 2 fair value input.
