JRC Global Buffet to launch express format on ex-Kababji site

October 29, 2020

JRC Global Buffet is set to launch a new express format in London’s Wimbledon, in a deal secured through leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons on behalf of the private landlord.

The nine-strong company JRC Global Buffet has secured the former Kababji site at 80 The Broadway, Wimbledon. The restaurant will comprise a smaller format offering on ground floor and a high-end restaurant, Shikumen, on the first floor. A new 15-year lease has been agreed at the property, which comprises three storeys and a roof terrace.

Louie Gazdar, Davis Coffer Lyons, said, ‘We are delighted to have secured a new tenant for the Landlord, in what is another example of operators taking on restaurant sites in affluent London neighbourhoods as they look to take advantage of more people working from home and navigate their way through this difficult pandemic period’.

JRC has been gradually reopening its estate over the past few months, with its restaurants in Ilford, Watford, Wembley and Wood Green, Southampton, Cardiff Bay and Croydon all now trading.

Davis Coffer Lyons advised the landlord and DMR Property acted on behalf of JRC Global.
