Pizza Hut have announced they plan to close 29 of their 244 UK restaurants which places around 450 jobs at risk.
A Pizza Hut Restaurants spokeswoman said, “We are committed to doing the right thing, and in order to secure as many jobs as possible and continue serving our communities, we are working to reach an agreement with our creditors.
“While we are likely to see 29 Hut closures and 450 job losses, any measures we take aim to protect about 5,000 jobs at our remaining 215 restaurants, as well as the longevity of the business.
“We understand this is a difficult time for everyone involved.
“We appreciate the support of our business partners and are doing everything we can to help our team members during this process, including speaking with those affected by the consultation.”
