Chain of Restaurants


Updated: 26th February 2018

Chain of Restaurants

The team in Scotland completed a deal for the original founder of a chain of restaurants which were sold five years ago, to buy back the group saving 63 jobs. A well known restaurateur and his wife started the business over 21 years ago but sold the group and moved to a new venture. The restaurants ran into problems under the new owners and we were duly appointed as joint administrators. With a strong brand and loyal following in the region it was simply too attractive a proposition for the previous owner to ignore.
