Wasabi, the London-based sushi and bento chain led by Dong Hyun Kim, is to open a 65,000sq ft production kitchen in Park Royal, West London.

The c40-strong group has signed a 15 year lease on the Segro-owned site, which is expected to complete in December 2015.

Wasabi will join other brands such as John Lewis, Ocado and Mash Purveyors on the former Guinness Brewery site, which is located eight miles from the centre of London.

Kim: “As our company continues to grow from strength to strength, we wanted to move into a larger premises that was in the prime location of Park Royal. Its connection to the heart of London was vital for Wasabi as it is where the main concentration of our outlets are.”

Segro chief executive David Sleath said: “We are thrilled that Wasabi is joining us at Origin - our flagship development - which has today reached a significant point in its evolution. Origin is more than a collection of industrial units – it creates employment opportunities for the local area, space for companies to grow and a base from which the ever expanding population of London can be serviced.
