Wing Shack has announced plan to open five new bricks and mortar locations in London, as well as two sites outside of the capital in 2021.

The chicken wings concept said it will open at undisclosed locations in Brixton, Bromley, Finchley, Camden, and Soho, alongside Manchester and St Albans, by the end of the year.

The brand’s first restaurant opened in Loughton in 2017, with concessions at Camden’s Good Mixer and Selfridges & Co, along, and delivery kitchens in Canary Wharf, Battersea and Clerkenwell.

Co-founder Josh Jarvis said: “It’s been a crazy year for everyone, but I really believe it’s been a year of opportunity for us. We’ve managed to remain positive throughout and so many great opportunities have arisen for us to expand our business quicker than we could’ve imagined. We are extremely confident about our brand and can’t wait to open our planned stores so more people can have that Wing Shack experience. I am especially excited about our site in Brixton as my business partner is from Brixton and grew up there, which gives it an authentically local touch.”
