Creditors of Gourmet Burger Kitchen have approved a plan to close 17 of the premium burger chain's restaurants, putting around 250 jobs at risk.
Managing director Derrian Nadauld said: "We'd like to thank the landlord community, our trade suppliers and our restaurant teams for their support through a challenging process.
"With the positive vote on our proposal to restructure our property portfolio, we are now able to execute the final stage of our turnaround plan, which we are confident will position the business for long-term sustainable growth".
Owners Famous Brands has appointed accountants Grant Thornton to initiate a company voluntary arrangement - an insolvency procedure struggling firms use to ditch under performing sites.
The company, which acquired the GBK brand in 2016 for £120 million, has launched a restructuring plan that could see sites close across the UK.
It has 80 stores and employs 2,000 people.
Three of those stores are in Birmingham - one in Brindleyplace , one in the Mailbox and a third at Resorts World at the NEC.
The company is the latest to make huge changes to its business as a result of tough trading.
Rival chain Byron, which has a branch in New Street, closed 16 restaurants around the UK following its Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) in January 2018.
It is the latest burger chain to be faced with store closures. Handmade Burger Company closed its Grand Central branch in Birmingham after difficulties in 2017.
It was founded with a single restaurant by brothers Chris, Richard and Matthew Sargeant in Brindleyplace in 2006 and grew into a national chain with almost 30 venues.
But it collapsed with sister company The Sargeant Partnership into administration in July, resulting in the closure of nine restaurants and the eventual sale of the business for more than £1.4 million a few weeks later.
