So how do you build a leisure brand in London?

The key is not to start slow. The first three locations are essential. These locations have to be in the right location, at the right rent and fit your concept perfectly so that you can generate the appropriate level of turnover and profit.


We pride ourselves on understanding London demographics and feel comfortable in giving advice as to which concepts fit which locations. There is no point in putting a high-end concept in a casual dining location which won't be received well. We understand that many brands that are building have always got one eye on the exit and we fully understand that and empathise with this and can help to put the structures in place to support an exit strategy.


CDG Leisure ensures not to over-price new opportunities that come to the market in order to maintain a high level of transactions. This ensures credibility and integrity in a market place, where so often these qualities are lacking.


With our innovative BAS (Bespoke Acquisitions Service) we are able to hold operators' hands through the journey of roll-out. We pick out locations whilst targeting landlords and opportunities within these areas to ensure that an Nth degree approach is applied to restaurant expansion.


That's not all. We have excellent contacts across the industry, not just within the property sector but within recruitment, finance and design. We are always happy to introduce our valued clients to our network of fantastic experts and businesses.
