White Brasserie expansion accelerating (23/07/2014)

White Brasserie, the pub restaurant brand owned by Brasserie Bar Co., is to step up expansion with plans to open 20 new pubs within the next three years.  The acceleration follows an investment from ESO Capital in February this year.

The first new pub, the Hare in Harrow Weald, Middlesex, will open next week.  The British Queen in Orpington, Kent will follow in August and The Sun Inn in Chobham, Surrey later this year.  The brand already operates two pub restaurants, The King's Head in Teddington, Middlesex and The Queen's Head in Weybridge, Surrey.  The pub restaurant format is becoming an increasingly attractive option for casual restaurants, with Pesto already trading successfully in pubs and Ego Restaurants looking to expand into them.


T.G.I. Friday's UK sale planned (21/07/2014)

TriArtisan Partners and Sentinel Capital, the private equity firms that bought the global T.G.I. Friday's business in May, are planning a sale for the brand's UK arm.  The price tag is expected to be around £200 million, based on T.G.I.'s 2013 EBITDA of £19.9 million.

The private equity firms have met with banks and are expected to appoint advisers in the coming weeks.  With strong brand awareness and financial performance, T.G.I. Friday's continues to have growth potential in the UK, not least through the roll out of smaller restaurants.  


Turnover and profits up at GBK (17/07/2014)

Gourmet Burger Kitchen reports turnover increased by 24% to £50.5 million and pre-opening costs profit by 63% to £1.9 million in the year to 23 February 2014.  The brand opened three new sites.

GBK is a pioneer in the premium burger scene, a segment which has seen competition intensify markedly in recent years.  Outlet growth at the burger chain was flat between December 2010 and 2012, but the brand starter opening new sites again in 2013.
