The restaurant group, which was founded in Liverpool by former barrister Nisha Katona in 2014, currently operates 10 restaurants across the country and is looking to expand further in 2020. Its next restaurant will open in Bristol later this month, followed by new sites in Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow next year.
“Despite the uncertainty in the wider economy, I have never been more passionate, and positive for the future,” says Katona.
Mowgli, which is backed by investment company Foresight Group, through its North West Regional Investment Fund, has opened restaurants in Manchester, Cardiff and Leicester this year
So far, the company’s expansion plans haven’t included the capital, although Katona says she hasn’t completely ruled out a move into London at some point.
“As a former lawyer I handle all the lease negotiations on our sites and I will never do something that is too risky or onerous financially, which is part of the reason we have not yet gone to London, but I am always on the lookout for the right site at the right price.”
