Prezzo facing "up to 100 site closures" under proposed CVA

Chimichanga is under threat of closure

Prezzo, which is owned by private equity firm TPG capital, is said to be preparing to launch a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) in the coming days.

The restaurant chain Prezzo plans to close up to one-third of its 300 outlets across Britain, putting hundreds of jobs at risk as it joins a growing list of high street employers locked in a desperate battle to restructure their finances.

Under the deal, the company will close unprofitable branches and secure rent reductions on the remaining estate.

The chain, which numbers 300 branches in the United Kingdom, is understood to have recruited the services of turnaround specialist AlixPartners to assist with the plans, which include shutting down its Tex-Mex chain Chimichanga.

It it yet to be confirmed which Prezzo restaurants will be affected by the closures.
