The acquisition, which also includes Cinnamon Kitchen and Cinnamon Soho, is part of BRH’s plans to build ‘a significant, multi-brand restaurant portfolio’, with expansion plans in date to take the Cinnamon brand around the country and overseas.
The purchase will see the existing Cinnamon team, including Vivek Singh (chief executive and executive chef for the collection) and Tina English (commercial director), keep their roles.
Singh said: “It’s very much business as usual at our three restaurants and we are looking forward to working with BRH. The acquisition presents Cinnamon with great opportunities for growth and for the team to be involved in an exciting stage of the Collection’s development.”
Ranjit Singh Boparan, chief executive Private Holdings, said: “We invest in businesses that add value to our restaurant portfolio and Cinnamon Collection represents an appealing proposition for our customers. We believe the business has significant potential for further growth and look forward to working with Vivek and his team to scale the business, particularly as Indian food is one of the UK’s favourite cuisines and is a rollable proposition.”
The Cinnamon Collection joins BRH’s other scalable restaurant brands including Harry Ramsden’s and Fishworks.
