Wagamama will reopen 67 sites for delivery and collection by the end of June.

From tomorrow (21 May), 24 sites will reopen and the following Thursday (28 May) will see a further 20 open up.

By the start of June there will be 49 delivery sites and by the end there will be 67 operating - around half the total estate.

The move comes after Wagamama reopened four of its dark kitchens last month​ - three in London, and one in Leeds with Wagamama CEO Emma Woods saying at the time that the phased reopenings would form a ‘test and learn approach’ for the business, with a further rollout dependent on team and customer feedback.

During the first week the sites will be open Thursday – Sunday and thereafter Wednesday – Sunday (with the exception of Kensington and Peckham which are trialling a seven-day operation).

Opening hours will be between 4pm and 9.30pm.

“Over the past couple of months our focus has been on creating a safe working environment for our team members and our two-week trial has enabled our teams to return to work safely," says Wagamama Woods.

“The next logical step for us is to open additional sites throughout the UK, this will still very much form a test and learn approach for the business.

"The response of our return has been extremely positive and we look forward to our guests being able to get their Wagamama fix.”
