Commercial kitchen operator Karma Kitchen has opened its sixth site in Wimbledon, South West London, and has secured a first partner for the location.
Spanning 14,682 sq ft with 26 units, the space looks to offer flexibility and scalability to food and beverage operators, at a lower price than a traditional space.
The site has already secured McDonald’s as its first tenant, which has taken a 2,000 sq ft delivery kitchen. This follows the fast food giant’s opening of a delivery kitchen at Karma Kitchen’s Bermondsey site in March 2023.
This news comes as Eccie and Gini Newton, co-founders of Karma Kitchen, were recently named by trade publication Business Leader as part of the ‘Top 32 Serial Founders’.
They said: “Wimbledon represents another major milestone for us. It continues our growth within carefully selected sites, those that work to support not only the business development of each of the brands that sign here, but also give us the best opportunity to improve the welfare of their employees. We are excited to welcome operators to our new Wimbledon location, bringing Karma Kitchen to a new area of the capital to create success for the brilliant people and businesses that really make the food and beverage industry.”
Last year saw Karma Kitchen add two sites – at Bermondsey and Crystal Palace – that more than tripled the amount of kitchen units it had available.
