The last remaining Pizza Hut restaurant in Nottingham will remain open after a £1.35m takeover of the site at Castle Marina. Bassi Properties Limited has acquired freehold on the property which is leased from Pizza Hut.

As for the restaurant, nothing will change. A fixture on Castle Bridge Road since the early 1990s, the lease will run until 2041.

The Nottingham-based property company already has an extensive portfolio of commercial properties both locally and in the Midlands. Avinash Bassi, managing director of Bassi Properties Limited, said of the latest acquisition: “It is already pre-let to Pizza Hut, it is the only one in Nottingham. It will remain Pizza Hut and the jobs are secure.”

“It’s an attractive site where it’s located in Castle Marina. We’d like to invest in Nottingham if we can.”

The company also owns properties that house KFC, Bet Fred bookmakers, Wollaton Co-op and Sainsbury’s Local on Waverley Street in Nottingham along with other retail outlets in the Midlands and an Aldi store in Rochdale.

Bassi Group was founded in 1985 by Avinash and his brother Subhash Bassi, who were initially market traders after moving to the UK from India. The company specialized in making clothing for stores such as House of Fraser, Slaters, Blue Inc, Beales, and Big & Tall.
