Wagamama has opened its 100th restaurant, with a new site in Hammersmith

The group now operates 95 restaurants across the UK, three in the USA, a central kitchen unit and the Wagamama lounge unit, a dining experience for festival-goers.

The new Hammersmith restaurant is located in the Old Fire Station in Hammersmith. It is 6,673 sq ft and will be the first London branch to feature Wagamama’s new bar concept.

Wagamama said the new opening had created 43 local jobs, bringing the total number of Wagamama’s employees to 3,126

Glyn House, operations director said: “This is an important milestone for us and we are thrilled to open our 100th unit in London where we opened our first restaurant in 1992 in Bloomsbury. This is an exciting stage for Wagamama’s development, as we recently accelerated the group’s expansion programme, with plans to open 15-20 sites per year in the coming years.”
