Lay off: Carluccio


More than 1,000 staff at Carluccio’s laid off after Italian restaurant chain bought out of administration

More than 1,000 staff at Carluccio’s have been laid off after the Italian restaurant chain was bought out of administration. 

It has been rescued by Giraffe and Ed’s Easy Diner owner Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG), controlled by ‘chicken king’ Ranjit Boparan. 

But only 800 staff at 30 restaurants will keep their jobs, after administrators could not find a buyer for the remaining 40. 

Lay off: Carluccio’s collapsed into administration in March after the coronavirus exacerbated its long-standing financial issues

Carluccio’s collapsed into administration in March after the coronavirus exacerbated its long-standing financial issues. 

It was previously owned by Dubai-based Landmark Group, which bought the business for £90m in 2010. 

Satnam Leihal, managing director of BRG, said: ‘We welcome Carluccio’s colleagues to BRG. 

‘We believe the quality hospitality businesses will recover in the long term as people return to eating out.’
