Pizza Express says it will cut around 1,300 jobs in the UK

The chain said last month that the restructuring deal would protect the future of the remaining 9,000 workers.

Pizza Express said it was cutting 1,300 jobs across the UK – above the 1,100 already announced over the summer.

The restaurant chain said recent trading has further deteriorated in the wake of the tightening of COVID-19 restrictions.
The announcement came after lenders agreed to restructuring in September, saying the chain had “secured” the future for the remaining 9,000 workers.

Under the deal, the company closed 73 sites Company voluntary arrangements (CVA) and unlocked a new investment of 144 million based on the vote result.

The Pizza Express, which is already on sale, confirmed on Thursday that it did not plan restaurant closures, but estimated that 1,300 staff would be harmed by voluntary and forced repetitions in an effort to cut costs.

In August, the company said its city center positions were immersed in business among those fighting for a future beyond the epidemic – the broader casual dining sector that supports the Eat Out to Help Out plan.
