Swindon’s Carluccio’s restaurant at the Outlet Village could be at threat of closure as the company is given approval for a restructuring programme that could see it close over 30 restaurants, putting 500 jobs at risk.
The Italian restaurant chain, founded by the late Antonio Carluccio, is looking to enter a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA), which will allow it to reduce rents while it enters negotiations with landlords.
After the creditors vote on Thursday Carluccio’s said it was relocating staff to remaining outlets where possible and would try to keep job losses at a minimum.
Mark Jones, chief executive of Carluccio’s, said: “I would like to thank our landlords for their support. We now look forward to a positive future and the on-going development of the Carluccio’s business and of course our passionate people.”
