The Asian healthy food chain Itsu opened in Bath on Friday 8th October. The restaurant at 43 Stall Street has 1,500 square feet of floor space, seating up to 52 customers with 12 outside.
Creating 20 jobs, the chain, founded by Julian Metcalfe, gives customers the choice of taking their food away, getting it delivered or dining in.
Julian Metcalfe said: “We are very proud to open our new destination restaurant in Bath, which is renowned across the world as a Unesco World Heritage Centre. In our alfresco dining area, our patrons will overlook one of the UK’s most famous and important historical cities.”
Itsu chief executive Ganan Kanagathurai added: “Bath marks the latest step in our dynamic expansion plans for Itsu in the UK and internationally. In the city, there is significant demand for quality food options from the growing number of home workers, and from casual diners wanting meals that are freshly prepared.”
Itsu plans to expand to 100 restaurants in the UK by 2026. They have opened at Leicester’s Fosse Park Shopping Centre with its second franchisee, Savvi Dining Group. Openings are also expected this year at Bromley and Edinburgh.
