Nearly 20 high street restaurant chains, including Frankie and Benny’s and Chiquito, will close permanently tomorrow.

The sites will close after their last day of trading on Saturday May 27.

The restaurant group (TRG), which owns both the Italian American and Tex-Mex chains, expects to save around £5million by closing its ‘loss-making restaurants’ when it announced the closure of 35 locations earlier this year.

Earlier this month, the group announced that it had advanced its intention to close the sites after negotiating the exit of a number of contacts earlier than planned.

This weekend, 12 Frankie and Benny locations will close, four Chiquito and only one Firejacks will close.

This brings the total number of restaurants closed this month to 23 – six Frankie and Benny restaurants closed earlier this month.

These closures included sites in Blackpool, Chesterfield, Tamworth and Tunbridge Wells.
