Brew, the London-based all day café concept, is looking to grow its estate to between eight and 10 sites over the next year before looking to expand outside of London, M&C Report has learnt.

The group has secured a site in Maida Vale for its fifth café but the opening is delayed due to planning issues relating to the use of the site, which was previously a cafe, to operate as an A3 premises.

Jason Wells, who leads the company, told M&C: “We are actively seeking more sites. We definitely want something in Richmond and Chiswick, which are far enough away from each other to count as separate areas without cannibalising ourselves.”

Wells said the company is in “really well versed to start to move ahead” having recently taken on a full-time operations manager.

The fourth Brew opens in November in Putney on the largest size space to date. It will offer all-day dining inside and out as well as a cocktail bar, BBQ area and Bedouin beds on the terrace for diners to have breakfast in bed.

Brew Putney joins the first three sites in Wandsworth, Wimbledon and Battersea.

Wells said: “I think we can get to 10 sites before we start to look outside of town and then just keep growing,” Wells said. “We have queues all weekend because we give people really simple, honest service. I think it’s the Australian thing coming through – you know where you are and what you are getting.”

Brew is continuing to actively look for sites but is struggling to find suitable A3 premises.
