Now, many of the eateries will not open after lockdown.

Private equity company Cain International is closing a number of eateries after it bought the firm back from administrators, in a pre-pack deal to secure its future last week.

The firm said it took the action to protect the majority of Prezzo’s 2,900 employees, though it resulted in 216 redundancies.

The deal came after Prezzo collapsed into administration after failing to reach agreement with landlords on rent payments, less than two months after Cain International had bought the business.
