Ping Pong, the dim sum restaurant operator, has stated that strong trading has allowed it to continue with its rollout plans, with two new sites to open in the City of London before the end of the year, M&C Report has learnt. The group, which has reported a 46% increase in sales on last year, said that the new acquisitions would bring its portfolio to 11 sites. The 10th outlet located in Bow Bells House on Bread Street is scheduled to open at the beginning of September. The company has also completed on a 5,500sq ft site on Appold Street in Broadgate, which is spread over two floors and will comprise a total of 220 covers. The restaurant, which is set to open at the end of November, will be the first outlet to include a fully-equipped meeting and dining room with full conference facilities. The company, led by managing director Jean-Michel Orieux, said that it was on target to open six new sites this year. Orieux said: “Ping Pong are delighted to announce the opening of their fourth new site this year in Appold Street, Broadgate, London. “Due to strong trading, sales up 46% on last year, we are still continuing our expansion plan as scheduled and will complete the programme of six new sites this year as originally announced.”
