The South-American inspired brand was pitched as a ‘young, fun and good value’ concept offering grilled meats and sides when it launched last September, but it closed its doors on 24 July.
“We tried the casual dining market and it wasn't as successful for us as we had anticipated,” says CDL co-founder Tomas Maunier.
“However, we have not ruled out opening Bossa in the future when the market is more stable and less saturated.”
CDL will instead focus on expanding its premium Fazenda and Picanha grilled meat and steak concepts.
Fazenda launched in Leeds in 2010 and has since opened two further sites in Liverpool and Manchester.
CDL is now lining up an opening in Edinburgh, and planning further growth of Picanha, which Maunier says has been a ‘pleasing success’ since opening in Chester.
Maunier and Fazenda co-founder Robert Melman were both listed in the Northern Restaurant and Bar show’s Top 50 hospitality Powerlist this year.
