Nick Cropper, Ryan Grant and Catherine Williamson of advisory firm AlixPartners have been called in as joint administrators over Millcliffe Ltd and CPL Foods – the franchising company responsible for the Margate store – following ‘cash flow problems.’

Some 1,000 workers nationwide are affected.

The store remains open while administrators explore  “all possible options for a sale of all or parts of the business.” They are also in talks with franchisor Burger King Europe.

CPL Foods  appointed administrators on April 13.
