The Irish business of restaurant chain Carluccio's is expected to get a liquidator in June.
Carluccio's entered administration earlier this year, but has since been rescued in the UK by food magnate Ranjit Singh Boparan, who purchased the restaurant chain in Britain from administrator FRP Advisory last week.
Carluccio's Ireland, which operates restaurants on Dublin's Dawson Street and on the Glasthule Road just outside of the capital in Dún Laoghaire, has called a creditors' meeting for June 10.
According to The Irish Times, British newspapers reported that the Dawson Street Carluccio's venue was one of 31 outlets that the chain's new owners intended to keep open, while another 40 outlets will close.
It is understood by The Irish Times that Carluccio's plans to propose appointing accountant Jim McStay of Dublin firm McStay Luby as liquidator. The chosen liquidator will be officially appointed at the June 10 creditors' meeting.
