After Carluccio’s announced bankruptcy in early April, Giraffe and Ed’s Easy Diner operator Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG) confirmed that it had acquired Carluccio’s brand.
Carluccio’s, which employed about 2,000 people and has a total of 73 branches in the UK and Ireland, announced its bankruptcy in early April due to the harsh conditions caused by the coronavirus outbreak. Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG), which includes restaurants such as Giraffe and Ed’s Easy Diner, announced it had acquired the Carluccio’s brand. According to The Caterer, BRG managing director Satnam Leihal said: “We welcome Carluccio’s colleagues to BRG. This acquisition is in line with our strategy to grow our restaurant group with quality brands. While it is an extremely challenging time for the sector, we believe quality hospitality businesses will recover in the long term as people return to eating out.”
