|Why I've Shut Ealing and Acton Shops|
Angela Malik statement on recent closures
Local chef Angela Malik has blamed 'cash challenges' and low footfall of her latest venture for the closures of her Ealing and Acton shops.
In a statement Ms Malik says:
'' It is with great sadness I announce the closure of Angela Malik Limited. This includes the two West London sites which, despite our best endeavours, we were unable to continue trading due to cash challenges; in the end, a lower than expected footfall at the new site dealt the final blow. We have appointed insolvency practitioners to place the company into liquidation.
''It has been a great privilege to build a business around my passion and letting go of my school in Acton is particularly hard as this is where I started out. The good news is that outstanding Angela Malik gift vouchers and cookery courses will have the opportunity to be honoured as I have secured teaching space at the prestigious Leith’s School of Food and Wine at their brand new kitchens in Portobello.
''I'd like to thank all our customers, students and collaborators who have supported and encouraged me on this journey, it has been the most incredible learning experience and I look forward to continue sharing my Modern Asian philosophy with all of you in the future.''
