Abokado, the healthy eating chain backed by Kings Park Capital, has further strengthened its opening pipeline in the capital.

The Mark Lilley-led, 25-strong group has signed a lease on a new site in the mid-town area of London, within the famous jewellery quarter of Hatton Garden for an opening this June.

Further sites are in legals or under offer with the group’s 27th store expected to open by July.

Lilley said: “We’re really excited to bring our Feel Great menu to what is an iconic part of town. Our beautiful, sparkly products will complement the jewels and diamonds of Hatton Garden really well!”

Lilley told MCA that the group’s trading had strengthened over the past few months, which was “particularly pleasing when considering all the bad news flow coming out of the sector”.
