Homeslice, the artisan pizza by the slice concept, is in talks to open a site in Shoreditch, M&C understands.

The concept, which was founded by Mark Wogan and Ry Jessup, is believed to be in advanced talks to take the FoodHall site in Old Street for an opening later this year. The site is currently on the market with a rent of £120k per annum.

The group will open its second site later this summer in Wells Street, Fitzrovia.

The second site will have a different look and feel to the group’s original Seven Dials unit, with the same core offering of pizza, beer and wine but with an added cocktail bar and dedicated takeaway space.

The company grew from a street food van to its first permanent home in Covent Garden’s Neals Yard in October 2013. The 45-seat site is predominantly restaurant with 10% of its average of 3,000 customers each week coming for takeaway food.

Wogan told M&C earlier this year, that the group was considering a return to the street food circuit by looking for “something more professional, or user-friendly, than our existing homemade oven”.
