Benito's Hat to open two new sites in St Albans and The O2 Arena

The news comes following a £1 million investment for a three year growth plan.

Benito’s Hat has announced that they will be opening two new sites in St Albans and The O2 Arena on December and early 2019 respectively.

The site at the O2 Arena will be their flagship store with 80 covers and a standalone cocktail bar. Their St Albans stores will continue to have the chain’s ranges of burritos, tacos, salads and quesadillas as well as a separate bar area that serves margaritas, agua frescas and coffee.

“We are hugely excited by this new chapter in Benito’s continued growth but it would not possible without the ongoing support of our investors, particularly Calculus Capital who have been a massive support,” Michael Pearson, managing director of Benito’s Hat, said.

Investment firm Calculus Capital provided a £1 million investment to fuel their three-year growth plans across the UK.

“We have been working towards these two new openings for over 12 months, adapting our store model, bolstering our supply chain and further improving our design. The hard work is now finally paying off and we can’t wait to open our doors to new audiences in St Albans and at the O2,” Pearson added.
