Vapiano to double London presence with three new openings

Its first site will be at Centre Point, with the second and third sites in Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge.

Vapiano has confirmed it will double its London presence to six sites during 2018, following on from the group’s successful launch in Glasgow. The opening at Centre Point will be Vapiano’s fourth restaurant in London and seventh in the UK. The development will give Vapiano 10,000 square feet of space with around 280 covers, and terrace seating facing Centre Point Square, a new piazza with direct access to the new Crossrail station and fourway crossing opening up Oxford Street, New Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road.

Vapiano Tower Bridge, at Berkeley’s One Tower Bridge development, will boast 311 covers in a 9,000 square feet space, and it will have a mezzanine plus an outdoor terrace and is also scheduled to open summer 2018. The Canary Wharf restaurant, at 8,300 square feet, and 284 covers, spans two levels and will open August 2018 in the Cabot Square area of Canary Wharf.

Vapiano managing director Phil Sermon said, “We are incredibly proud to have secured these three impressive new sites, which underlines our strategy to both open in high profile, high footfall locations and continue to grow our exceptional business within the UK. Whilst we are announcing these three now, we expect to announce more in the next few months.”

With these three new openings, Vapiano will employ 600 staff across nine restaurants.
