Mexican fast food chain Barburrito will be investing in new kitchens as it embarks on an ambitious expansion plan fuelled by a £3.6m funding package.
The Manchester-based company, which was founded eight years ago, has secured investment from the Business Growth Fund.
It is the second time in two years that the business has secured funds worth more than £3m from the BGF.
Barburrito presently operates 11 stores spread across Manchester, London, Leeds, Nottingham and Liverpool, but aims to have an outlet in every major UK city in the coming years.
Co-founder Morgan Davies said the financial support would give it the “fire power” to maintain its strategy of trying to become the most popular burrito brand in the UK.
Its restaurants are reportedly seeing growth of 10% to 15% a year, with sales expected to exceed more than £8m this year.
