Restaurant group Tasty has seen pre-tax profit jump to £44,000 for the first half of 2011, up from £13,000 in the same period the year before.
The company, which owns the firm behind the Dim-T and Wildwood brands and is run by Ask and Zizzi founders Adam and Sam Kaye, opened a Wildwood restaurant in Canary Wharf in the period and now has 15 restaurants - of six Dim-T units and nine Wildwoods.
The company said it expected to open another six to eight units in the next six months.
Revenue for the period climbed to £6.8m, thanks in part to the new opening.
