Brewhouse & Kitchen has seen 115% sales growth in the first six days of the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Following the phased reopening of 17 of its 22 sites, the business had already reported growth of 6.1% during its first four weeks of trading, which accelerated to 29.4% for the week ending 8 August.

Although its regional sites, especially those on the South Coast, have been trading far better than its London sites, the group’s Highbury and Islington pubs are trading ahead of forecast.

In a bid to adapt to the post-lockdown environment, the group introduced an all-new order and pay at table platform “B&K On Tap”, which has prompted an uptick in consumers buying beers, gins and ciders from its entire portfolio.

Furthermore, following a successful series of trials through the Summer, the group is set to launch a food and beer delivery service this Autumn.

“Food sales have been very strong through the week and we saw growth continue every day through Thursday, Friday and Saturday across the group,” said CEO Kris Gumbrell.

“To have been showing growth prior was really pleasing, but the Eat Out to Help Out scheme has been the icing on the cake for our business.”
