YO! Sushi takes Kensington High Street site

YO! Sushi is to take over a 4,400 sq ft restaurant on London's Kensington High Street.

The company, which has around 70 restaurants, is expected to pay around £250,000 a year in rent to landlord Ignis Real Estate for the site at 176-206 Kensington High Street, following a deal brokered by property agency Colliers International.

YO! Sushi has taken a new 20-year lease and received three months rent-free, plus a capital contribution to the fit-out. Lunson Mitchenall acted for YO! Sushi.

Charlotte Brunt of Colliers International said: "This is a significant letting for this stretch of Kensington High Street. YO! Sushi is a very strong food offer and a significant driver of footfall."

Founded in 1997, YO! Sushi brought the concept of a Japanese ‘kaiten' sushi bar that delivered food to customers via a conveyor belt travelling at 8cm per second to the UK.
