Barburrito to open seventh site in Scotland

Mexican-style fast-casual restaurant brand Barburrito has acquired its seventh site in Scotland, this time in Aberdeen.

The new venue will open in property developer Hammerson's Union Square shopping centre.

The news comes after Barburrito acquired and converted five Pinto Mexican Kitchen sites across Scotland and also saw the grant of a premises licence for a site on Forrest Road in Edinburgh.

Jim Bishop, property director at Barburrito, said: "We are delighted to be among some very successful brands at Union Square and are looking forward to opening in the autumn. This acquisition continues our UK roll out with further openings planned before Christmas."

Sarah Fox, head of restaurants and leisure at Hammerson, added: "We are pleased to welcome Barburrito to Union Square and to Aberdeen. With its diverse line-up of restaurants the centre has become a hotspot for new and exciting dining in the city and Barburrito is a great addition to the offer for our customers."

Barburrito recently confirmed an additional site at intu Derby, targeted for a mid-2017 opening, taking the total estate to 22 restaurants nationally.

It is backed by growth capital provider BGF, and aims to open a further 10 sites over the next two years.
