Zona is victim to a chronic shortage of hospitality staff in the city.

"Like so many, encountering problems besetting the Hospitality and Catering industry, difficulty in replacing staff who are moving on and leaving the industry altogether is proving a challenge," the statement read.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers and the community of Orange for your support."
