London-based sports bar operator Sports Bar & Grill has secured its fourth site at Network Rail’s new balcony retail scheme at Waterloo Station. The company has committed to invest £750K in the 2,842sq ft site, which is expected to open in time for both Euro 2012 Football Championships and the London Olympics. The site is forecasted to turnover £30K a week and will create 40 jobs. A fifth Sports Bar & Grill is planned for late 2012 and a sixth site in early 2013. Owner David Evans said: “We are delighted to have come out on top in the tender process particularly when you look at the quality of the other companies that were also tendering. “It’s a fantastic achievement and shows how far we have come in such a short period of time. "It really proves we are now able to successfully challenge established operators for prime locations on merit and are able to offer landlords a brilliantly recast offering by adding great design, exceptional food and outstanding service to sport.” The company was named Best Newcomer at the MA250 Awards earlier this month.
