Coal Grill and Bar has opened its eighth restaurant as the group remains on track to open 16 sites by the end of 2015.
The new venue opened on 28 August at waterside shopping development Gloucester Quays in Gloucester, owned by Peel Group.
The listed wharf-side warehouse site has ground floor space for over 100 covers plus a cocktail bar and is located directly opposite a multi-screen cinema, as well as having views of the canal.
John Gater, chief executive of Coal Grill & Bar said: "The location of Gloucester Quays is perfect for restaurants. We have experienced great success in opening in locations with shopping and leisure facilities. The combination of the two provides a platform for trading across the day. I am also pleased to announce that we will open a further two restaurants by the end of the year."
Coal Grill & Bar's signature dish Firesticks, includes flame grilled skewers of meat and fish served on a hot skillet. An extensive menu of fresh chargrilled steaks and chicken, seafood, pizza and pastas are served daily. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening cocktails.
The chain will open two further restaurants in Telford and Swindon later this year, taking the total number of units to 10. Development continues for 2015 with further sites on the horizon.
Gater added: "The brand continues to trade well, with strong like for like sales. We continue to please the customer with our policy of over delivering on quality and value."
