The Irish business of restaurant chain Carluccio’s will be wound up next month following its British parent’s rescue by food magnate Ranjit Singh Boparan.
Mr Boparan, owner of Fox’s Biscuits and a vast chicken processing empire, bought Carluccio’s in Britain last week from adminstrator FRP Advisory, appointed to engineer a rescue for the troubled business.
Carluccio’s Ireland Ltd, which owns two restaurants, on Dawson Street, Dublin, and Glasthule Road, Dún Laoghaire, has called a creditors’ meeting for Wednesday, June 10th.
Carluccio’s Ireland employs about 60 people, according to its accounts.
The formal notice says the meeting will appoint a liquidator.
