Cote Completes Sevenoaks

April 24, 2013

Cote, the Richard Caring-backed chain, which is currently involved in a sales process, has completed the acquisition of the 44th site, the former Thai Square in Sevenoaks, Kent.

The site, which will open in June, will follow openings in York and Tunbridge Wells, and proceed launches in St Katherine’s Dock and Windsor.

Thai Square, the restaurant chain, sold its site in Sevenoaks as it part of a shift in focus to its London-based estate due to current immigration legislation making it difficult to employ skilled chefs across its regional units.

It is thought that the company, which currently operates 17 restaurants in and around London, including units in St Albans and Windsor, is close to securing a further former pub site in the capital on the back of the disposal of the Sevenoaks site.

Jake Bernstone of Davis Coffer Lyons acted on the deal.
