The Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group is to close 12 UK branches following a restructuring review of the business.
- Bluewater, Kent

- Milton Keynes
- St Albans, Hertfordshire
- Greenwich and Threadneedle Street, Piccadilly
The remaining 25 Jamie’s Italian sites in the UK will continue to trade normally.
Jon Knight, CEO of the Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group, said:
This was a not an easy decision but it’s a crucial step to ensure our strong and much-loved brand can continue to serve our loyal customers.
We will look to redeploy as many staff as possible within the wider Restaurant Group. All staff impacted will be paid fully and all our obligations to them fulfilled. We’re incredibly grateful to the dedication and hard work of every single member of staff.
