CEO Comment On Beannchor Temporary Layoffs

Colin Neill, Chief Executive of Hospitality Ulster said:

“This shows the critical nature that the hospitality sector is now in, here.”


“Even some of the biggest employers are having to take drastic measures - no business is too big not to feel the negative impacts of COVID19. They are all in a precarious position.”


“Beannchor Group, one of our biggest and best hospitality sector employers, will have looked long and hard before taking this difficult decision in an attempt to try and get through this very difficult period.”


“There has been many other small businesses laying off staff in the last few days and I only dread to think of what is truly ahead of us if the NI Executive doesn’t bring forward an industry specific rescue package soon.”
