Vietnamese restaurant group Pho is to open two new London sites in 2014.
The openings, at 134 Chiswick High Road, and 50-52 Battersea Rise, will take Pho's total number of restaurants to 11.
The company, led by Stephen and Juliette Wall, is backed by Isis Equity Partners and has plans to open five restaurants next year. In addition to the two London openings, expected to take place in the first quarter of 2014, Pho has also secured a site in the new Birmingham Grand Central development.
The group, chaired by ex-Wagamama chief executive Steve Hill, recently appointed a head of property and a head of marketing as it plans to grow its estate to 25 sites over the next three years.
Stephen Wall said: "Chiswick and Battersea are two of London's most vibrant suburbs and we're really happy to have secured great sites in both areas. We're working hard on developing other key London and national opportunities at the moment following our very successful openings in Leeds and Islington over the last few months."
Pho currently has nine restaurants in: Clerkenwell, Oxford Circus, Westfield White City, Brighton, Soho, Westfield Stratford, Spitalfields, Islington and Leeds.
