Leon opens second Canary Wharf site amid expansion push

Restaurant and café group Leon has opened a new site in Jubilee Place in London's Canary Wharf.

Opening on 22 October, the 42-cover site is on the -2 level of the Jubilee Place development, and the second Canary Wharf location for the group, after its Cabot Place West venue.

The company, which aims to serve "naturally healthy fast food", announced plans for a wider expansion drive in late 2014 and has now opened seven new sites this year. Overall, this is the 29th opening for the group and there are four more London locations planned before the end of the year, including High Street Kensington and Leadenhall.

Founded by John Vincent and Henry Dimbleby, Leon serves all-day food designed to appeal to consumers seeking healthier options and includes a range of salads, wraps, ‘hot boxes' with brown rice, baked fries, salads, and protein pots. It also recently introduced a 10p tax on drinks containing added sugar.

The group is mostly concentrated on and around London, but it also operates in Stansted airport, Birmingham, the Eurotunnel station in Folkestone, Brent Cross, and East Midlands airport.
