Camino plans seven more openings by 2015

Spanish bar and restaurant group operator Camino has announced plans to open seven more restaurants by 2015, creating up to 250 jobs.

The London-based company currently operators three restaurants and employs around 125 people.

The plans come after Camino received a £3m investment from the Business Growth Fund, which has been established to help Britain's fast-growing smaller and medium sized businesses.

The fourth Camino will open in Blackfriars in spring 2013, having opened its first in King's Cross in 2007, its second in Canary Wharf in 2010, and its third in Monument in 2012.

The group also owns Bar Pepito, which became the first dedicated sherry bar in Britain when it opened in King's Cross in 2010.

Camino was established in 2007 by Richard Bigg and Nigel Foster, who have worked together since opening their first bar in Shoreditch in 1995.

Richard Bigg, managing director of Camino, said: "We want to bring the life and soul and tastes of Spain to more Londoners. We are delighted to be opening in the heart of the City, in Blackfriars, in spring 2013 and plan to open several more sites in the coming years."
