Clapham House plans 35 more outlets within next few years

Clapham House Group (CHG) is pushing on with its ambitious growth strategy, despite already doubling the size of its estate with the £25m purchase of Tootsies in April.

The restaurant operator, which now has 61 restaurants and four brands, will open 10 more Gourmet Burger Kitchens in its current financial year.

Five other sites are also planned, including a new Bombay Bicycle Club in East Dulwich, south London, and a Tootsies at Brent Cross shopping centre in north-west London.

CHG has also sent out a site prospectus to various UK property agents, targeting more than 100 locations for its burger chain, and a similar list is being drawn up for more Bombay Bicycles in London.

CHG managing director David Page said: "We aim to add 35 restaurants to the group within the next few years."

Group turnover for the year to 31 March was 132% higher than last year at £17.3m (2005: £7.5m) Pre-tax profit was £684,000 compared with a loss of £605,000 a year earlier.
