Prezzo Crawley saved from closure

Among the 94 restaurants closing, all 33 Chimichanga outlets are shutting down including the one in Crawley High Street.



With the national news that TexMex chain Chimichanga is closing all of its 33 outlets, there has been confusing messages giving the impression that Prezzo in Crawley is closing.

After speaking to Prezzo’s Head Office and Crawley restaurant’s manager, CN24 is pleased to announced that the Crawley’s Prezzo has been saved from the list of closures.

Prezzo is closing 94 restaurants, about a third of its outlets, in an attempt to rescue the business. Part of these closures mean that all of its 33 Chimichanga outlets including the one located on Crawley High Street will be shut down.

The closures aim to repair Prezzo’s financial position and allow it to continue trading as it enters a restructuring arrangement know as a company voluntary arrangement (CVA).

The move could result in around 1,000 job losses. Prezzo however, has said it will try to find staff new roles within the business.

Prezzo was bought by TPG in 2014 for just over £300m.

Haywards Heath’s Prezzo in The Broadway is amongst those closing but Horsham’s restaurant in Carfax will remain open.
