Jamal Hirani – the owner of Tiffin Bites – has revealed his company will be opening a new Bombay Bicycle In Twickenham. The Gourmet Restaurant Group – of which Hirani is the founder and chief executive – bought the Bombay Bicycle group of restaurants from Clapham House earlier this year for £4.4m Including the assumption of debt, it is thought that the value of the deal was between £8m and £10m. The business comprises three restaurants and 15 home-delivery units. Speaking in the magazine Real Business Hirani says: “We'll also grow the chain very quickly. “We've just acquired a new site in Twickenham and will be opening a Bombay Bicycle in the next two months there. Indian food is very popular and we have plans to take the chain outside of London to all the makor cities.” Gourmet Restaurants has four Tiffinbites locations – in Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street, Moorgate and St Paul’s – and also operates the upmarket Vama restaurant in Chelsea. It also recently signed a deal with a franchise partner to open restaurants in the Middle East. In the year to March 2008, the BBC business generated losses of £0.48m. The business had assets valued at £2.4m. Commenting on Tiffinbites, Hirani adds: “When it comes to Tiffinbites, we'll also be opening more and more restaurants. “We're going international later on in the year by opening two stores in Dubai in the autumn. We also have restaurants starting up in the new Westfield Shopping Centre in White City, London, as well as in Oxford, Leeds and Birmingham.”
