Growth for Bill’s Produce Store

East Sussex-based restaurant and greengrocer business Bill’s Produce Store plans to opens branches in Chichester and Bath as well as in London it has revealed.

 

Bill’s, which runs two sites in East Sussex, in Lewes and Brighton, has acquired a site in the West Sussex town of Chichester.

 

The site is expected to open later this year. Bath is another town in which the business will definitely have a presence, according to owner Bill Collison, although he added that London would probably be the place for the business’s third branch.

 

Bill’s had revealed plans earlier this year to open its third branch in nearby Horsham in the Grade II-listed Town Hall, but issues over planning have forced the company to look at different towns for its next opening, said Collison.
