They plan to open 10 more restaurants this year, saying it had identified more than 125 possible new UK locations for Franco Manca and 30 more The Real Greek locations.

Meanwhile, it is also close to signing overseas franchising deals in Portugal, Greece and Japan, according to The Times.

It comes as the company has seen a boost in profitability since the easing of restrictions.
