The pizza chain is reportedly seeking financial advice as it prepares for crisis talks over a large amount of debt.
The group's most recent accounts show the chain's total debt was £1.1bn at the end of last year - working out at around £1.8m a restaurant.
About half of the debt is due to be repaid by August 2022.
