POD, the healthy fast food concept, has opened its eighth site in London, in High Holborn. The company, which is led by chief executive Tim Hall, has already opened a 70-cover eaterie in Exchange Square Broadgate, an outlet at More London on the Southbank, and a 2,700sq ft site in the Cheapside office development in the City of London, this year. The company raised private investment from a mixture of shareholders and small funds to finance its ongoing rollout at the end of 2009. Hall launched the business with former Pret a Manger partner Kate Skerritt in 2006.
