South American restaurant group Fazenda will reopen its Birmingham restaurant having agreed a new deal with the landlord.

Last month it was announced that the restaurant would not reopen following the Yorkshire-based restaurant group having been bought out of administration ​in a pre-pack deal and failing to reach the necessary agreements with the landlord on the Birmingham site.

However, the restaurant is set to return to Colmore Row, reopening with the rest of the hospitality industry in May.

Parent company, Southern Winds Group had originally secured 243 jobs when acquiring the Fazenda brand and its assets in early March, safeguarding 243 jobs. The reopening of the Birmingham restaurant now takes the total number of jobs saved to 286.

“It's been an extremely tough few weeks, though we are delighted beyond words to have finally reached an agreement with the landlord and to be able to retain the jobs of our Birmingham team,” says managing director Tomás Maunier.

“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.”

The Fazenda restaurant brand was founded in 2010 serving a menu of grilled meats.
