Loungers continues roll-out with four new sites

14th November 2023 | Jack Oliver

Loungers has opened four new sites as it continues its expansion programme, which the operator says is “firmly on track”.

The group has opened three new Lounge sites as well as a Cosy Club in Oxford in recent weeks.

The three Lounge sites are Alfredo Lounge in Louth, Lincolnshire, which is part of the former Eve & Ranshaw department store; Bordo Lounge in Carlisle, which sits in a former Topshop; and Muro Lounge in Hexham, formerly an Argos.

The Oxford location is Loungers’ 36th Cosy Club.

Loungers – which also owns the Brightside roadside dining concept – now has an estate totalling 242 sites, and said it is on track to open 34 sites in the current financial year.

The group said earlier this year that it sees potential for 600 sites across the UK.

Nick Collins, CEO of Loungers, said: “Our accelerated site roll-out plan remains firmly on track, and we’re delighted with the four new sites that we’ve opened in the last few weeks. It’s particularly pleasing to be increasing our presence in the north through the openings in Carlisle and Hexham, and we see significant potential for more sites in both the North West and the North East.

“It’s also great to be finally opening a Cosy Club in Oxford. It’s a city that’s been on our list for quite some time and we’ve been really pleased with trade in its first few weeks. Our ambitions for Oxford don’t end there and, in time, we see scope for bringing at least four new Lounge sites to the suburbs of the city.”
