Leon, the healthy fast-food chain led by John Vincent, is to replace the Café Ritazza unit in the main concourse at London’s Victoria station, as part of its partnership with SSP.

The company, which in 2016 signed a five-year partnership with SSP to open a number of the units in railway stations across the UK, is set to take a site on the station’s main concourse later this spring.

The group, which currently operates 53 sites in the UK with a new opening lined up for Horseferry Road, already operates sites with SSP in Euston, Liverpool Street and Paddington Stations.

Last month, Leon announced it was planning a further 20 store openings in Europe and the Middle East through its partnership with HMSHost International.

The healthy fast-food chain currently has already opened nine sites with the American highway and airport food-service company – three in the UK and six in the Netherlands, and is looking to extend its reach into key transport hubs.

The agreement with HMSHost International will see the brand eyeing up openings in railway stations and airports in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands, and airports only in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey, France and Spain.
