Nando's closes two south Essex restaurants due to food shortages


It comes after Nando’s was forced to close down certain stores after running out of food due to delivery delays.

The restaurant chain said a number of locations had to close last month due to a shortage of supplies, including the Lakeside and Basildon Festival Leisure sites. 

Both were temporarily closed for eat-in, delivery and collection, but have now re-opened.

A spokesperson for Pizza Hut Restaurants, said: “While the majority of our menu and customer favourites are available at our Festival Leisure Park Pizza Hut Restaurant, we are facing some supply shortages.

"Businesses in the UK face a complicated situation as we manage pandemic-related issues, including a supply chain affected by the shortage in HGV drivers.

"We are working with our suppliers and partners to limit disruption for our customers at this time.”
