Bella Italia has revealed plans to open 100 new restaurants over the next five years and introduce a new all-day dining concept at existing sites.

The aggressive expansion strategy follows the sale of Bella Italia’s parent company Tragus to Apollo Global Management, which significantly reduced the company’s debt burden and freed up £100m of funding for refurbishment and expansion of the Bella Italia brand.

In addition to opening 20 new restaurants a year in town centres and retail and leisure schemes throughout the UK, Bella Italia will introduce new interiors to its existing sites, as well as a new menu and breakfast offer.

London property firm Cushman & Wakefield has been appointed to help find the new sites.

Nick White, managing director at Bella Italia, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Cushman & Wakefield on this next phase of expansion for Bella Italia.

“It’s an exciting time for the brand as we open new sites and refurbish the core estate.  Bella has a very broad appeal delivers a quality, value for money and authentic Italian experience and  we’re looking forward to entering the next stage of growth.”
