Gusto officially announces closure of West Bridgford restaurant

The announcement follows our earlier report on the closure.

Gusto West Bridgford will not reopen after lockdown.

In a statement the business said:

‘It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closure of our restaurant in West Bridgford.

‘This is not a decision that we intended to make but sadly we have been left with no choice. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our business, like many in the industry and we’re terribly sad to be closing our doors.

‘We can’t thank you enough for being members of our Gusto family, for choosing us to celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and so many other special occasions with us, which we hold dear to our hearts.

‘We do hope that this isn’t goodbye and hope to welcome you in one of our other Gusto restaurants across the country soon.’

The Wire understands that all staff have been made redundant in the move.

Gusto completed a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) process in September 2020 which secured more than 600 jobs but will see four sites close.

The proposals were supported by the majority of creditors, with 98% voting in favour. As a consequence of the restructuring, the group’s restaurants in York, Lytham, Leamington Spa and Mere Green in the West Midlands closed with the loss of 105 jobs.
