FENG SUSHI SECURE RESTAURANT, DELIVERY UNIT & HQ IN RAVENSCOURT PARK

Feng Sushi is to open a site at 264 King Street in London’s Hammersmith next month. The restaurant will be the sushi chains ninth in London.

Silla Bjerrum, who co-founded the chain in 1999, says the restaurant expects strong demand in west London, particularly for its delivery service, which will serve Hammersmith, Chiswick and Acton.

The restaurant is also expected to have space for 20 diners upstairs and around 12 outside and will also serve as the head office.

The Hammersmith site will also be the third in the group to offer Feng Sushi’s “grab and go” menu, which was first introduced at Feng Sushi’s Notting Hill site in September, following by Kensington in January.

“We will take the grab and go a step further with the new site,” Bjerrum said. “What is exciting about this project is that we are going in with a clean slate and we can build the business around the grab and go, instead of introducing it to an existing business.” The delivery service at the new site is expected to be up and running by early next month, with the restaurant and grab and go ready by late May or the beginning of June.

Selsian acted on behalf of Feng Sushi negotiating a new 15 year lease at a rent of £32,000 for the 2,100 sq ft site arranged over the ground and basement.
