TriBeCa, the Glasgow and Edinburgh based restaurant chain, has been saved from liquidation with a £1m investment from new owners.

Puneet Gupta, Navdeep Basi and Suj Legha have stepped in to save the restaurant group, and hope to expand TriBeCa into a nationwide franchise.

The four Glasgow restaurants - Dumbarton Road in Partick, Park Road in Woodlands, Fenwick Road in Giffnock and Bell Street in the Merchant City - will continue to operate as TriBeCa.

Gupta told Glasgow Live : “We are delighted to have kept TriBeCa’s doors open and look forward to supporting our existing franchisees, alongside growing the brand nationally. We plan to open another 15 units across Scotland within the next couple of years.”

Basi, who owns Merchant City restaurants The Dhabba and Dakhin, added: “These are exciting times for TriBeCa and we will be looking to fine tune our supply chain processes, create a new menu and ramping up our marketing support for existing and future franchisees.”
