Casual dining group Bill's Restaurants has announced the opening of five new sites, plus two more to come in the next month.
From June to August 2015, the 71-strong group has opened in Sheffield, Gloucester Quays, Colchester, Taunton and Muswell Hill, in a variety of locations aimed at shoppers and families, including in former industrial buildings, a Georgian period property and busy high-street venues. Most also have seats outdoors.
Witney is set to open on 7 September, while the Leeds branch in Albion Place is expected for 21 September.
Open from breakfast until after dinner, Bill's sites offer a wide variety of brasserie-style dishes including separate breakfasts and cakes, alongside juices and various sides and snacks.
Originally founded by a fruit and veg salesman from Lewes, Sussex, Bill's is now directed by former Caprice Holdings managing director Andy Bassadone.
In December 2014, the group was ranked the fastest-growing hospitality operator by The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list, after its turnover grew an average of 108% for each of the previous three years. In its latest figures it revealed turnover of £53.9m, and then said it planned to add 25 more locations to its then-51 sites.
