Dim sum chain Ping Pong has confirmed that it has secured a unit at Westfield London for what will be one of its largest sites when it opens in September.

The group, which currently operates eight sites in the capital, has acquired the Le Palais Du Jardin site sandwiched between Wagamama and Carluccio’s at the scheme, with the new opening set to comprise a private dining room, a feature lounge bar and terrace.

It is also thought that the group is assessing its options regarding its two-strong US operation, with further expansion not ruled out.

Chief executive Art Sagiryan told BigHospitality's sister publication M&C Allegra Foodservice ​that the group would like to open one further site in the capital in the first quarter of next year before assessing further expansion opportunities in the UK.

Earlier this year, the company described the last 12 months as 'transformational'​.

The group saw like-for-like sales climb 10 per cent to £15.25m in the year to 28 March. Operating EBITDA was up 32 per cent at £2.9m, while Group EBITDA more than doubled to £1.6m.

On the back of the strong cocktail sales, the group’s sales mix currently stands at 70/30.
