Amigos was a little unfortunate with councillor Bass who felt the need to turn North Hill into a bus lane giving us no passing trade, three months after we opened, alongside what can only be described as an explosion of new restaurants opening during our 22 months trading.
Unfortunate we had a landlord that despite our paying him some £95,000 in 22 months, often late we admit, would prefer not to work with us and leave his building empty. The building needs substantial investment which we were prepared to take on so long as the landlord worked with us in giving us some latitude should our cash flow mean we were late with the rent, he felt that the level of debt gives the directors no option but to take legal steps to protect the position of the company and its stakeholders. How having an empty building with no income protects their position is beyond us! The restaurant business is very seasonal January – April when they pulled the rug from under us are not great months May – December are considerable stronger, our rent due for the 22 months was £89,666, so the Landlords squeezed an extra £5,000 out of us, but how leaving an empty building makes good business sense escapes us.
We miss you all! Hopefully we will be launching a take away business very soon……..watch this space!
