Giggling Squid can confirm they have recently acquired a site in Cheltenham, which will open early 2018. The 3000 sq. ft site, boasting a prime location with great frontage in the Montpellier district, will have an estimated 110 covers with 50 extra external covers front and back.
Following the news that Giggling Squid will open their first London site in Wimbledon this summer, the acquisition of Cheltenham shows that growth is set to continue well beyond 2017.
Giggling Squid co-founder, Andy Laurillard comments: “We’ve had our eye on Cheltenham for a while now, we’ve just been waiting for the right spot to come up. We’re confident that we’ve found it in the Montpellier district; from what we’ve experienced, it’s a great area for eating out and we think our unique offer can really contribute to the buzzing food scene”.
Giggling Squid’s next launch will be Brentwood in April.
Owned by Thai-born Pranee Laurillard and her husband Andrew, Giggling Squid took a £6.4 million investment from Business Growth Fund in 2015 to accelerate growth plans. Founded in the basement of a tiny fisherman’s cottage, now the Brighton restaurant, the couple opened their first site in Hove in 2009 and have gone on to establish a strong reputation for authentic Thai cooking presented in a relaxed and contemporary setting.
