Loungers hits 75 sites

Loungers, the all-day cafe, bar and restaurant group is to open its 75th site and its 20th of 2015 today in Bury St Edmunds.

The new Edmundo Lounge will launch in a former Officers Club unit on Cornhill in the town and follows the recent openings of Teatro Lounge in Clevedon, Drago Lounge in Newport, Zinco Lounge in Swansea and the group's 12th Cosy Club in Bournemouth.

Edmundo Lounge is set over two floors of a Grade II-listed building and comprises 150 covers internally.

It is Loungers' first opening in Suffolk and is the furthest east the Bristol-based group has ventured to date.

Loungers managing director Nick Collins said: "We set out to open 20 sites in 2015 and we've achieved our goal. The business is significantly bigger than this time last year, with hundreds more jobs created and with both our top and bottom lines enjoying very satisfying growth. We're very comfortable with the speed of the roll-out and feel we have the talent and strength in depth in our ops team to continue at pace and we're excited at the prospect of developing out the 2016 pipeline".

Lounge sites are expected to open in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Hinckley and Newquay in the first two months of next year. The group's 13th Cosy Club will open in Hereford in mid-February.
