Tough times

Yesterday brought the sad news about Carluccios and Chiquitos entering administration with the potential loss of many jobs. The word on the street was that both these businesses were already struggling along with many other mid market casual dining brands so I don’t think that the timing of the announcements had much to do with the current pandemic.

It will be interesting to see what happens to both chains, will they be broken up or will the administrators find someone with deep enough pockets to turn them around. Having just completed my stint at Pat Val I know just how deep those pockets are going to have to be.
