Chopstix to open four sites by end-July
At least 12 stores are set to open before the end of the year.
Chopstix has announced plans to open four new sites in Brixton, Canary Wharf, Cardiff St David’s, and Kingston-upon-Thames by the end of July, part of its growth plan for the year.
The planned openings will follow three recent launches in Glasgow, Oxford, and Middlebrook in Bolton.
At least 12 stores are set to open before the end of the year, the company said. It already operates more than 75 restaurants across the UK, including 22 franchise stores operated by Welcome Break and Applegreen.
Jon Lake, managing director of Chopstix, said: “We’re gathering very strong momentum, not just in terms of sales but also the amount of opportunity we have to expand through equity stores, franchise partnerships and also through brand extensions and collaborations. As such we are very confident about the year ahead and the prospects for the Chopstix brand overall, and look forward to sharing more on these various initiatives in due course.”
The chain’s accounts for the year to 25th April 2021 saw turnover for the year standing at £16.2 million, whilst the business launched partnerships with two new franchise partners, Sparta Foods in Burslem and CSDK Ltd in Sheffield.
