Jamie Oliver closes 6 UK restaurants amid 'tough market' after Brexit

Jamie Oliver closes 6 UK restaurants amid 'tough market' after Brexit Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is shutting six of his 42 Jamie's Italian restaurants in Britain amid tough trading conditions and a lower pound following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

The Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group announced Friday that five restaurants in England and one in Scotland would close in the first quarter of 2017.

Chief Executive Simon Blagden said "this is a tough market and, post-Brexit, the pressures and unknowns have made it even harder."

The closures will affect 120, although Mr Oliver said that he hopes to find alternative jobs for employees affected by the closures.

The company has been hit by the the sharp collapse in the value of pound, which has increased the cost of buying ingredients from Italy.
