Why Invest

Proven Roll-Out With Opportunity To Open At Least 600 Lounges Across The UK

More than 20 sites opened per annum for each of the last seven years across three brands delivering consistent 30% plus returns on capital.

Consistent, Resilient Industry Outperformance

Seven years of industry-leading LFL sales growth, with FY23 LFLs of +7.4% driven by the performance in both our mature estate and newer sites.

Three Distinct but complimentary brands

Our now three-brand approach, with Lounges, Cosy Clubs and Brightside, allows us to maximise our geographic and demographic reach. We can open Lounges in a broad range of smaller secondary locations in suburban high streets and market towns, as well as opening Cosy Clubs in larger market towns and city centres. The recent launch of the road-side restaurant chain, Brightside has scope to develop a truly national brand, with aims to be rolled out to all corners of the UK in the coming years.

All Day Offer At The Heart Of Our Success

Consistent operational delivery in a complex, all-day sector competing against coffee shops, sandwich shops, restaurants and pubs. Our broad menu spans all day parts, cuisines and categories – with a clear focus on quality and value.

Relentless Focus On Innovation

We respond to consumer demands and trends through a constantly adapting and evolving menu, driving sales growth and maximising brand appeal; not wedded to any one cuisine, so we’re able to move quickly.

Broad Appeal Across The UK

All ages, demographics and regions of the UK are catered for, especially in secondary towns, suburban high streets, coastal sites, retail/leisure parks (Lounges), larger towns and city centres (Cosy Club) and roadside locations (Brightside); and still plenty to go for across England, Wales and Scotland.

Investing In UK High Streets & People

Each new opening represents up to £1m investment into local high streets and the creation of 30 new jobs. Over 1,000 new roles are created every year through new openings and business evolution.

Founder-Led Management Team & An Incentivised Workforce

Long-established Senior Management Team with significant sector experience and proven track record of industry-leading results. Two of the three founders remain actively involved in the business with a clear focus on rewarding, incentivising and rewarding talent across the business.

Opportunities For Greater Centralisation

We’re investing more in operational support, procurement and supply chain, risk management and maintenance, recognising that we can do more centrally to ensure our site teams can focus solely on their customers and their own teams
