Gordon Ramsay Restaurants is planning to open another 10 sites in the UK by the summer as the group pushes forward with an 'ambitious' expansion strategy.

Within the last few weeks the group has launched five new restaurants, including three further openings under its fledgling burger brand Gordon Ramsay’s Street Burger in London's Charing Cross, Kensington High Street and Woking, respectively.

The group is now planning another 10 restaurant openings in the UK by the summer, with dozens more sites currently under review.

It comes as Gordon Ramsay Restaurants announces the appointment of Antony Perring as the group’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Perring previously served as CFO of Leon Restaurants from 2015 to early 2021, and prior to that served as financial director at Wagamama from 2006 to 2014. 

"I'm extremely excited to be joining the Gordon Ramsay Restaurants team as the sector emerges from lockdown," says Perring.

"Our planned new restaurant openings will enable the business to accelerate its growth, boosting employment in the sector and advancing existing and new landlord relationships."

Last summer Ramsay said his ambition to 'create a billion-dollar dining proposition' had been undented by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the chef laying out plans to open 50 new UK sites​​.

The chef's UK portfolio is concentrated in the capital, and also includes a number of singular, high-end restaurants such as the three Michelin-starred fine-dining flagship Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea; Petrus in Belgravia; and Lucky Cat in Mayfair.

“Despite all of the pandemic related challenges, we have to be optimistic and forward thinking and invest back into our amazing industry," says Ramsay.

"We have an incredibly ambitious global growth strategy, and I’m delighted to have Antony on the team to help drive our future expansion plans."
