A Turkish restaurant chain based within London has initiated its first move to expand outside of the capital by taking over a site in Gloucester.
Woody Grill, which operates seven sites in West London and most recently opened a restaurant in Watford, bought the former TNT nightclub building in the centre of Gloucester at an auction last month.
The owners now plan to convert the former night-spot into a restaurant and take the number of site they operate to eight. They will serve traditional Turkish food including kebabs and mixed grills.
A spokesman for the chain told the Gloucester Citizen: “We already have seven successful branches in London. When the site in Gloucester came up we thought it was a great opportunity to expand outside of London. Our restaurants serve traditional Turkish cuisine and the Gloucester branch will be full service and first class.”
Woody Grill hasn’t announced a date when the Gloucester restaurant will open, but fit-out work will begin soon.
“Construction will start on the site in the next few months and we hope to be open as soon as possible. We are very excited about what the future holds,” the spokesperson said.
