Loungers opening one new site every 10 days this year

18th April 2024 | Jack Oliver

Loungers has continued its rapid site rollout, having opened a new location every 10 days so far this year.

The hospitality group – which owns the Lounge, Cosy Club, and Brightside brands – now operates a total of 257 sites.

Over the past three months, the group opened new ‘Lounges’ in Bromsgrove, Chepstow, Macclesfield, Westwood Cross, Bracknell, Ilkley, Sidcup, and Yeovil.

The new locations range from brand new developments to former banks, retail outlets, and restaurants in high street locations.

Loungers said that each new site represents nearly £1m invested into the local high street.

Last year, the group said it had identified potential for at least 600 sites across the UK.

Alex Reilley, chairman and co-founder of Loungers, said: “With a new site opening every 10 days so far this year across a wide variety of locations in the UK, Loungers continues to go from strength to strength with a fantastic pipeline ahead.  We still firmly believe that there is scope for over 600 Lounges, and are more excited than ever about the future of this business.”
