The tribe is on a world tour of the 124-strong chain, which they bought from Rank for $965m (£483m) in March.

Yesterday in London they announced plans to double the number of outlets around the world up to 250. Restaurants in less desirable parts of the UK and the US would be closed, but the tribe also wants to open up to 90 hotels, with London a priority location.
