Prezzo confirms plans to close 94 restaurants

It's the end of the road for a number of Prezzo restaurants after the company announced it will close 94 eateries across the country.

The business will also shut down all 33 of its Tex Mex Chimichanga restaurants, including one branch in High Street, Ealing.

The move will result in around 1,000 job losses but the company has said it will keep these to a minimum and attempt to find staff a role within the business.

It appears the Italian eateries in west London have been saved from being shut down.

The restaurants that are affected are due to close in April 2018.

The chain, bought by private equity firm TPG Capital in 2015 in a deal worth £304m, employs around 4,500 people in the UK.

Prezzo entered into a restructuring arrangement known as a company voluntary arrangement in an attempt to rescue its business.

It is one of many food chains in trouble including celebrity chef Jamie Oliver who earlier this year announced he will close six restaurants .

A number of other companies have announced closures including toy giant Toys 'R' Us and fashion retailer New Look putting thousands more jobs at risk.
