Mexican fast-casual restaurant brand Tortilla has confirmed plans for another two stores in the UK as its 30th opens in London's Russell Square. 

The burrito and taco brand plans to open sites at Intu Eldon Square in Newcastle and Cribbs Causeway in Bristol next month. They will follow Russell Square, which opened yesterday (17 October) and Guildford and Silverburn in Glasgow, which opened earlier this year. 

A spokesperson for the brand said the operator was planning more sites for next year, but could not confirm where they would be yet. Its first outside the UK opened in Dubai last week and it is also planning to open sites in Saudi Arabia and the Emirates this year and next. 

Tortilla managing director Richard Morris said: "We started this business to provide a ‘relaxed burrito bar’ for local residents, students and passers-by in Islington. We've worked hard to maintain our values across all 30 locations. Our environments are designed to be individually unique and fun and we continue to believe that there is little in life better than a cold beer and a juicy burrito.

"It’s a major achievement to be opening the doors of our 30th store in the city where we first began, and we're excited to continue opening restaurants all over the UK."

The business, founded by American Brandon Stephens, opened its first site in Islington in 2007 after he noticed a gap in the market for Cali-Mex food in the UK. Funding received from private equity firm Quilvest in 2011 enabled the brand to expand outside London.
