Thai Leisure Group plans to open eight to ten sites this year

Thai Leisure Group (TLG) has announced expansion plans for 2016 following a "bumper" 2015, which saw turnover exceed £30m.

The company aims to add eight to ten new sites this year, to its existing 15 restaurants across the four core brands: Thaikhun, Chaophraya, ChaoBaby and Yee Rah.

It will mark its first opening of 2016 and the first in the North East, with its Thai street food concept Thaikhun in Newcastle's Metro Centre at the end of March.

Additional restaurants will be launched in Guildford and Aberdeen, along with other locations, yet to be announced. The roll-out in 2016 will be supported by TLG'S newly formed openings team.

Ian Leigh (pictured), managing director of TLG, said: "We are incredibly proud of TLG and how far it has come in 2015. It was a wonderful year for the whole team, and this is something we want to continue into the coming year.

"As we go from strength to strength we aim to continue delivering a creative and authentic dining experience for our customers, and we are looking forward to welcoming new customers through our doors.

In 2015, four new sites were opened by TLG, with more than £4m total investment, which the group claims makes it one of the fastest growing Thai restaurant groups in the UK.
