Fri 13th Jun 2014 - Breaking News - Red Hot World Buffet to open £2m restaurant
Red Hot World Buffet to open £2m restaurant: Red Hot World Buffet, owned by Luke Johnson’s Risk Capital Partners, is to open a 420-cover restaurant in Leicester after a £2m investment – thought to be the highest single restaurant investment ever made in Leicester. Situated on the corner of the High Street and the Highcross shopping centre, part of the venue used to be the Litten Tree public house. The all-you-can-eat’ restaurant will be spread across 16,000 square feet over two floors and will create 70 new jobs in positions including management posts, chefs and waiting and bar staff. The venue will cater for up to 420 people and will serve cuisine from around the world including Italian, American, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and British. There will also be a full bar fronting onto The High Street. James Horler, chief executive of the Red Hot World Buffet group said: “We are very excited to be moving into Leicester and with over 2,100 people already applying for 70 jobs with us, I’m sure it will be a successful investment. The venue will have everything under one roof including a fantastic choice of food to suit every taste from pizza and pasta to sushi and a world grill serving meats and fish. Not forgetting the range of quality desserts including 14 varieties of cake, four types of fruits, two Indian desserts and a chocolate fountain with all the trimmings.” Red Hot World Buffet is due to open in Leicester on Monday 30 June and will also offer customers a regular calendar of live entertainment they can enjoy over a drink in the bar or while having a meal in the restaurant. Horler added: “After the success of the Red Hot World Buffet in cities like Nottingham, Liverpool and Leeds, we thought there would be a real taste for this kind of venue in Leicester. We hope to offer something for everyone. It’ll be a great destination for families to enjoy a meal out together plus with the variety and quality of food on offer, it’s an ideal place for groups of friends, work colleagues or students to have a night out.” The Leicester site is the first opening since Risk acquired Red Hot World Buffet last year – and is a pipeline site dating back as far as 2011. Red Hot World Buffet lost its Northampton site to a fire in December and has decided not to rebuild it because of its short lease length.
