Giggling Restaurants, the operator of the Giggling Squid Thai restaurant chain, has secured its fifth site in the South East. The chain, which was founded at the end of 2009 by Andrew and Pranee Laurillard, has acquired the leasehold interest of The Gallery restaurant in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, for an undisclosed sum, off a guide price of £80,000. The company currently operates three restaurants under the Giggling Squid in Brighton, Crawley and Hove. The group is also hoping to open on the former Puccino’s coffee shop site in Reigate, Surrey, which it acquired last September, later this year. Christie + Co acted on behalf of the vendor in the Tunbridge Wells deal.
