Tortilla dashes in to claim first UK branch in a travel location


Tortilla is set to open its first branch in a travel location after inking an agreement with transport retail operator SSP Group.

The chain, which numbers 40 stores – the majority in London – will open at Euston station from early December.

Tortilla is the UK’s largest fast casual Mexican restaurant chain, launched by two Californians in 2007 after a four-year search across London to find the burritos and tacos they’d experienced in San Francisco.

The company has been successful in rolling out a series of compact stores in the last two years and the move into a travel location will add another string to its bow.

Separately, SSP has also struck a deal to open a Starbucks on the station’s expansive balcony at the same time. It will be Starbucks’ largest store at a Network Rail station.

Starbucks will offer a full range of high-quality whole bean coffees, premium teas and fine pastries and light meals.

Andy Webb, business development director of SSP UK & Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to have added high-street favourite Tortilla to our list of brand partners. This new unit, alongside a bigger and better Starbucks, will be exciting new additions to the food and beverage offer at Euston, and we’re confident they will be well-received by travellers passing through the station as well as those who live and work in the area.”
