Prezzo will open 11 new restaurants before the New Year, taking its total site count to 230.
Prezzo interim chief executive, Dirk Eller, said: “We are delighted to be opening 11 new restaurants by year end and creating so many additional jobs.
He explained that the openings have been targeted on areas where Prezzo has no representation.
“Our restaurants continue to prove very popular and we believe there is significant scope to open more Prezzo restaurants in the months and years to come.”
The new venues open in Farnborough, Blackpool, Wickford, Staines, Newport, Redditch, Yate, Bridgnorth, Abergavenny, Tewkesbury and Malvern.
The company is currently seeking a new chief executive after founder and former chief executive Jonathan Kaye stepped aside in June.
