The Restaurant Group (TRG), owner of the Frankie and Benny’s and Chiquito brands, is considering opening further sites under its new US-themed restaurant and bar concept Coast to Coast, after the success of its trial unit in Brighton. As revealed by M&C Report last year, the group launched the trial format, which is similar in style to the group’s two Filling Station sites based in Scotland, at the former Strada site in Brighton Marina. Andrew Page, chief executive at TRG, told M&C: “The first site has exceeded our expectations and is performing really well, without affecting the nearby Frankie & Benny’s. We are very optimistic that this performance will be built on as we head into spring. “We will take our time but will look to add a couple of further sites under the format over the next six to seven months.”
