According to Tvnz.co.nz, Heather Mills’ UK vegan eatery VBites might be closing its doors for good. The popular restaurant recently shut down for the winter season, but the news site claims the business is in real trouble and will probably not reopen.
A cafe insider revealed, “I understand Heather has been hemorrhaging money on VBites for a while now. A six month ‘holiday’ isn’t usual.”
Heather, however, says this story simply isn’t true.
“VBites had a great summer, the success has brought us many opportunities to become worldwide,” she Tweeted. ”We are so excited to start our franchise projects and spread the Vegan ethics, training classes, cookery classes now our cafe is in its wintery weather season. Keep updated on VBites.com and thanks for all your continued support.”
Moreover, a note on the website reads, “We have had a fantastic summer and – like many beach cafes across the country – will be closed over the winter so that we can focus on staff training, recipe development and VBites franchising.”
We don’t know what to make of this whole thing, but we sure hope the rumors aren’t true. Fingers crossed that VBites isn’t gone forever!
