Casual dining chain Zizzi has axed plans to run a delivery operation while its restaurants are closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
But yesterday it said he had decided to close these operations, with immediate effect.
“Following the latest government guidance on social distancing and staying home wherever possible, we believe it’s in the best interests of our amazing teams to suspend our takeaway and delivery services for the time being,” explained managing director Harry Heeley.
“We will be ensuring that our ingredients go to food banks and to others who would benefit from them the most.”
With no visibility on when restaurants will reopen said, Mr Heeley said its immediate focus was on supporting its staff.
“We are doing everything possible to look after our Zizzi teams during these tough and unprecedented times,” he said.
