Fresh Italy, the pasta in a cup concept formerly owned by Tom Allchurch, has been placed into administration and its three remaining sites placed on the market. Two Australian entrepreneurs acquired the business from Allchurch in November 2008. Wilder Coe, the accountancy group, has been appointed as the administrators and Currell Commercial, the chartered surveyors, is marketing Fresh Italy's three London restaurants. These include Goring Street, with a rent of £75,000, King William Street, rent £80,000 and Ludgate Hill, with a rent of £105,000. Premium offers are invited for the businesses. Founder Allchurch disposed of the business more than a year ago but retained one unit at Lakeside shopping centre that trades as Pasta Italia. M&C Report understands there has been limited interest in the three remaining sites.
