BREAK for the Border is to open its second Café en Seine outlet next month in Peterborough.
The café-bar will be adjacent to the company's Break for the Border Western-style restaurant which opened in June. The original Café en Seine is in Dublin.
Chief executive Roger Beaumont said that lawyers were also negotiating the purchase of properties for new restaurants in three more cities.
Reporting pre-tax profit down from £1.77m to £1.68m in the year to 31 March, after exceptional costs of £240,000, the group confirmed it was on schedule to open 10 more restaurants over the next three years.
Turnover dropped from £24.7m to £21.8m, largely because of the disposal of non-core interests, including the sale of events caterer Lawson Beaumont in October to Gardner Merchant for £2.5m.
Break for the Border has fiveWestern-style restaurants, two Café en Seines and a further café-bar in Dublin called Sinnots.
