Simon Thomas and Arron Kendall, Partners of Moorfields Advisory Limited, were appointed Joint Administrators of Hotcha Limited and Hotcha Group Limited on 18th October 2017.

Hotcha operated a Chinese takeaway chain which was incepted and predominantly based in the South West but which was pursuing a national growth strategy. The chain has a head office in Bristol which acts as a warehouse, central kitchen and group administration function and is capable of supporting up to 75 outlets.

Moorfields is seeking a purchaser for all or some of the Company’s assets, which consist of a portfolio of leasehold properties, commercial catering and office equipment and intellectual property, including website domain names and the “Hotcha” registered trademark.

Simon Thomas, Joint Administrator, stated: “Notwithstanding Hotcha’s failure, the infrastructure that has been developed and is available for acquisition presents a unique opportunity for either a new or an established restaurant or takeaway business to develop its growth ambitions”.

Interested parties seeking further information in respect of either the leasehold property or chattel assets, or to arrange viewings, should contact our respective agents as follows:
