It current has 47 sites around the UK and has a target of opening a minimum of 10 restaurants a year. Harald Samuelsson, joint managing director, said “We are very much looking forward to opening up our new restaurant in the heart of Bury and introducing our unique dining experience to the town. It is a vibrant place with huge economic potential.
