“We want to thank you for the support you’ve shown for our business and our teams over the last few days. However, following the latest government guidance on social distancing and staying home wherever possible, we believe it’s in the best interests of our amazing teams to suspend our takeaway and delivery services for the time being. We will be ensuring that our ingredients go to food banks and to others who would benefit from them the most.”
