Wagamama, the fast-casual noodle chain, has secured its first site in Plymouth, at the Royal William Yard delopment in the city. The group, which hopes open another 15-20 sites in the next 12 months across the UK, will join Seco Lounge (part of Loungers), Hugh Fernley-Wittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen and Prezzo at the mixed-use development. No date has been given as yet for what will be the group’s second opening in Devon. The group recently announced new upcoming sites at Ealing Broadway Centre (5,300sq ft), Telford Southwater (3,500sq ft), Fulham Broadway Centre (2,800sq ft) and Southampton West Quay (3,500sq ft). It is also believed to have secured sites in Dorchester, MediaCity in Salford, York and at the Southside shopping centre development in London’s Wandsworth. Property consultant Cushman & Wakefield has been retained to aid the expansion, with plans to eventually expand the chain to 300 sites in the UK.
