The group, which currently operates 17 sites under the brands Chopstix, Wok in a Box, Oodle Noodle, New Organic Noodle Concept and Noodle Stop, in London, Glasgow, Leicester and Norwich, has acquired a 1,100 sq ft space next to KFC and McDonalds in Bluewater’s food court.

 

Brandon Elmon, agency director at Davis Coffer Lyons who brokered the deal, said: “Bluewater will provide a great stepping stone for Chopstix’s further expansion into shopping centre environments, and we have three other sites in solicitors’ hands.”

 

The group is also thought to have secured sites in Portsmouth, Edinburgh, Belfast, Glasgow and Slough.
