Bertucci’s Inc., an Italian-restaurant chain known for its brick-oven pizza, is making preparations for a bankruptcy filing, according to people familiar with the matter.

The company is lining up a buyer who would take control of the business after the filing, said one of the people, who declined to be identified because the process isn’t public. The move could come as soon as next week, according to the people.
