The Derby city center restaurant closes permanently

A restaurant in central Derby was closed permanently after its owner entered the administration.

The Latin American themed Iguanas, at Frate Gate, will not reopen after the coronavirus block.

It is one of the 11 stores in Las Iguanas across the country that were closed after its owner, the Casual Dining Group, entered public administration.

A total of 19 staff members were affected by the closure of the Derby branch.

The closest Las Iguanas to Derby is now based in Chapel Quarter, Nottingham.

A message on the Las Iguanas webpage for Derby reads: “This restaurant is now closed.

“Your closest Las Iguanas is Nottingham.

“To all our customers, thank you for your support and we hope to welcome you back to Las Iguanas in the future.”

The Casual Dining Group is also closing some of its Bella Italia and Cafe Rouge sites. There are no Bella Italia or Cafe Rouge outlets in Derbyshire.

The Mirror reports that over 1,900 jobs are scheduled to be grouped across the group, although 4,000 are safe for now.

James Spragg, CEO of Casual Dining Group, said: “After reviewing all of our options with consultants, it became clear that we needed to take this action to protect the company and ensure the best possible future for Casual Dining Group while we look to conclude a potential sale.

“We are deeply aware of our duty to all employees and recognize that this is an incredibly difficult time for them.

“By working alongside administrators, we will do everything we can to support them through this process in order to preserve as many jobs as possible.”

Clare Kennedy, joint director of Alix Partners, who has been appointed to manage the process, said: “We appreciate that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone associated with the Casual Dining Group.

“Our immediate priorities are to help those whose employment has been influenced by today’s announcement and to ensure a sale for the group in order to protect jobs and provide the group’s well-loved brands with a sustainable platform for the future” .
