Giggling replaces Jamie in Kingston
AG&G acted on behalf of Giggling Squid, the Business Growth Fund-backed Thai casual dining group, to secure its second London site, in Kingston-upon-Thames.
The 24-strong group secured the former Jamie’s Italian site on the High Street, which closed earlier this year, for a launch later this year.
The group, which is led by Andy Laurillard, has five further sites secured so far for openings this year in Bishops Stortford, Cheltenham, Chichester, Harpenden and Windsor.
Speaking in February, co-founder Laurillard said: “All our restaurants are ahead of last year apart from one, which is an amazing result. Recent openings have been particularly successful, proving that demand for our offer is stronger than ever.”
AG&G has played a key role in the expansion of Giggling Squid. Indeed, the company acted on the group’s debut site in London, the former Café Rouge in Wimbledon, which opened earlier this year.
