Sushi and bento chain Wasabi has placed a further two sites on the market in central London, MCA has learnt.

The company has placed the Kimchee to Go site and its Wasabi site on the corner of the Strand and Southampton Row on the market.

The total unit is held on an existing 25-year lease from 19 October 2012, with a current rent of £65,000 per annum. The company is understood to be seeking £500,000 premium for an assignment of both leases.

The company launched two Kimchee To Go express units in New Oxford Street and The Strand in 2013.

The company had originally planned an additional 12 sites under the Kimchee to Go brand by the end of 2015, but has so far failed to add to the original two sites. It also operates to restaurant sites under the Kimchee name.

MCA reported last week that the company had closed its site on Victoria Street, London.

The site, which operated alongside a Coco Di Mama, Itsu and Pret, is believed to have closed earlier this month.

The company currently operates 52 sites in the UK, including 44 in the capital, with a further opening lined up for Paddington Station.

It grew like-for-like sales 8.1% in 2016, with turnover growing 21.5% to £98.1m.

In August, it announced a trial partnership with Marks & Spencer, with sushi counters going into five M&S stores before Christmas.
