The new operators are taking a long lease and launching a new concept.
Simon Rigby told Blog Preston: “Yes Vittorias Preston is closing but only to make way for something very exciting for Preston.
“They are national operators with strong local ties and were drawn to our flagship unit. As this is going to be so good for Preston and The Guild Hall I have agreed the let.”
Rigby said that his core business is being a landlord.
He continued: “Due to the work we have done on The Guild Hall including operating the units ourselves as The Guild Hall was so run down you know us as operators but in fact our core business is being a landlord.”
