Hancock’s, the American Kitchen & Bar concept, has secured three new sites in Hampshire which will launch before the end of the year.

The brand, which launched in Chatham, Kent, in July 2017, is to open in the St Mead’s Centre in Farnborough, the Swan Centre in Eastleigh and the Whiteley shopping centre in Whiteley village.

It follows launches in Camberley in Surrey and Maidstone in Kent already this year.

David Chick, director of Hancock’s, says: “Initially, our objective was to end the year with four sites across the South East, however, as the brand has grown, so has the opportunity for expansion. The fact that our stateside inspired, value for money concept has proven its ability to appeal to practically every demographic gives us the confidence to think bigger.”

Hancock’s is currently assessing the viability of a number of other potential sites across the country and anticipates further openings will be announced early in the new year.
