Fazenda Birmingham won’t close after all

Fazenda, a small but growing group of Brazilian steak houses, will reopen its Birmingham branch after its new owners agreed a deal with the landlord.

The site’s closure was announced in March after the South American restaurant chain was bought out of administration by Southern Wind Group, The Caterer reported.

This secured the future of the company’s Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh and Liverpool restaurants, but its Birmingham site was set to close. It will now reopen on May 19, saving 43 jobs.

Fazenda’s managing director Tomas Maunier had promised the brand would not disappear from Birmingham indefinitely. He has come good, it would appear.

“Our priority as a business has been to save as many jobs as possible, so today is a day of huge celebration – one of those moments that makes you really happy as a business leader,” he told The Caterer.

“Before the pandemic hit, the restaurant was trading exceptionally well and the team we have built has made a big impression on the people of Birmingham.”
