Leon, the healthy fast food chain led by Henry Dimbleby and John Vincent, is aiming to carryout further bond schemes to raise funds for expansion, after the success of its first one this year. The 13-strong group, which is looking to open 10 restaurants over the next three years, said it had not reached its target of raising £1.5m through its inaugural bond scheme but had been “happy “ with the response and had raised enough new investment to aid its next stage of growth. Dimbleby told M&C Report that the company would look to launch a similar scheme in 2013, but that “this one might have a few tweaks and changes” compared to the first one. This summer the group opened its first site in an airport at Heathrow’s Terminal 3 under its franchise agreement with American firm HMSHost. It is thought that Leon is looking at number of further site opportunities in transport hubs with HMSHost both in the UK and internationally. It is understood to be close to signing up on another three sites. Last month, the group appointed Matthew Jones, former chief financial and operating officer of the US-based Barbeques Galore business, as its new finance director.
