Camile Thai Kitchen announces UK-wide expansion

The group has also revealed a technology-centric strategy for 2021

Thai food chain Camile Thai Kitchen has announced plans to open 15 new locations across the UK and Ireland, creating 300 jobs in the process.

Of the new sites, seven will be situated in the UK at locations that include Epsom, Twickenham, and Streatham.

The firm is looking to grow its team at the same rate as its store expansions by providing 80 of the 300 new full and part time positions in the UK.

The roles will be set across a number of different fields such as retail, operations, property management, business development and sales, marketing, and culinary.

Brody Sweeney, founder of the company, said: “Despite an extremely difficult year for the hospitality sector, for Camile 2020 has seen rapid growth. 

“Our suburban, delivery focussed model has proven to be pandemic proof in the last eleven months, not least in terms of revenue and sales.”

The chain, which was the first European firm to deliver its menu by drone, has also revealed plans to raise nearly £9m as part of its technology-centric strategy.

Sweeney added that the group’s strong revenues has allowed it to “prematurely move ahead” with its main “tech pivot” target.

While currently only offering flexible franchise options in Ireland, the group aims to open up to six additional franchise outlets in the medium term.
