Frankie and Benny’s restaurant on Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield is not expected to be affected by a closure plan, a company spokesman has confirmed to Gedling Eye today (30).
A spokesman for The Restaurant Group PLC, which also owns the chain, confirmed that its Frankie and Benny outlet in Netherfield is not expected to close after announcing plans to close or sell 33 “underperforming” sites.
Restaurant Group, which owns more 500 eateries in the UK including in Nottingham city centre, Lenton and Mansfield, announced the closure plans on Friday (August 26) as part of its interim results report.
Company chairman Debbie Hewitt said:”This has been a challenging trading period for our leisure brands, albeit with a good performance from our pubs and concessions businesses.
“The board has moved quickly to undertake a review of the operating strategy and we now have clarity on the issues facing our Leisure brands, particularly Frankie and Benny’s.
“The brand remains relevant and popular and we are confident that improved performance will be achieved by being more customer-focussed and data-driven, and through better operational execution.”
