Comptoir Libanais, the London-based Lebanese fast-casual concept, plans to open up to six new sites next year in the capital after receiving new investment.

The chain, which is owned by Tony Kitous, plans to open two sites in the City, two in airports and a further two in central London.

It currently operates three sites in the capital in Wigmore Street, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford. It will open a fourth before the end of the year in South Kensington.

Kitous, who is the man behind the Middle Eastern cuisines of Levant, Pasha and Kenza, said the new investment from a private investor would enable the group to “speed up its rollout plans” for the next two to three years.

He told M&C Report: “The roll out plan is subject to finding the right sites but we are at a point now where we are activity looking to ramp up our expansion plans.”

The group also operates the Shawa concept in Westfield London, and although Kitous hasn’t ruled out opening more sites under the grill format he said that the company would be concentrating on Comptoir Libanais for the foreseeable future.
