La Tasca, the Spanish casual dining chain, is to unveil its new concept – La Tasca - Spanish Tapas Bar & Kitchen – in August at its sites in Leeds and Windsor, M&C Report has learnt. The concept, which if successful will be rolled out across more of the chain’s 67-strong estate, will feature a “radical new design and new logo” Simon Wilkinson, chief executive, told M&C Report that the new concept was “a complete overhaul propelling La Tasca into the 21st century”. He said: “ The menu quantity has been halved and the quality vastly improved. There will be a new Spanish breakfast menu, dining at the bar will be a strong feature and it will also feature a new coffee offer. Value is built into the menu so there will be no voucher driven discounts.” The concept will also include feature nights, such as Tapas and Wine Wednesday, which offers a glass of wine and three tapas dishes for £9.95 and a Family Day on Sunday where adults eat for £9.95 and children £4.95. A menu de dia at £5.95 and £6.95 will be offered midweek. The chain’s backers Kaupthing and Commerzbank are investing £5m in the repositioning of the chain. The company plans to spend the next 12 months getting the core fundamentals laid down across the chain, through the refreshing of the brand and people training. The following year it will look at expand domestically. It is currently underpopulated in the capital and parts of the South East. Wilkinson told M&C earlier this year that “in the long-term there is certainly potential to double the estate.”
