Mexican restaurant brand Barburrito will open its fourth and fifth sites this spring and summer as part of plans to grow the estate to seven by the end of this year and ten by 2011. The chain, founded by Morgan Davies and Paul Kilpatrick in November 2005 and backed by fund management firm Cenhos, will open its next restaurant in Manchester's Deansgate on 15 April before opening a store in Leeds in the summer. Chairman Richard O'Sullivan, co-founder and owner of Millie's Cookies until 2003, said the brand had seen “impressive financial growth” over the past three years with like-for-like sales up 30% at its existing two sites in Manchester and in Liverpool. Annual turnover was £2.3m for 2009-2010. O'Sullivan said: “Barburrito’s rapidly growing popularity with consumers is due to it consistency in serving fast, fresh, and healthier Mexican food. This has enabled us to embark on what is a well-coordinated expansion programme in Manchester, Liverpool and latterly, Leeds in Summer 2010.”
