Maintaining momentum as it continues to buck the trend of a high street in decline, award-winning Thai restaurant group, Giggling Squid, co-founded by Pranee and Andy Laurillard and back by BGF, has announced the opening of its first ever delivery-only kitchen, operating out of Food Stars’ new facility in Wandsworth, with Deliveroo as delivery partner.
Following the success of Giggling Squid’s Wimbledon restaurant as a top Deliveroo site, Giggling Squid’s new kitchen in Wandsworth, which borders the delivery radius for Wimbledon, will enable the established brand to cater to the area’s appetite for Thai cuisine, expanding reach without over-stretching existing restaurants.
With Giggling Squid experiencing considerable growth in its takeaway business over the past 18 months since partnering exclusively with Deliveroo, the new kitchen will tap into the growing appetite for high quality takeaways, offering the restaurant’s full Deliveroo menu to local Wandsworth residents.
Andy Laurillard comments:
“In undoubtedly challenging times for the hospitality industry, we’re delighted that the business continues to thrive. Our Wandsworth kitchen reflects our continued commitment to catering to our customers’ needs, investing throughout the business to ensure continued success. Whilst our priority will always be to welcome guests to eat in at our restaurants, delivery only kitchens will allow us to reach new audiences and test locations as we continue our ambitious business expansion.”
Pranee Laurillard, co-founder comments:
“Our Wandsworth kitchen will reflect the superior eat-in standards we have for those looking to eat at home. Still offering great food to share, cooked by our expert Thai chefs, we’re looking forward to welcoming new people to the brand.”
The Giggling Squid Kitchen, Wandsworth will open for orders on 17th March 2020.
