Buffet restaurant chain Cosmo has secured three new sites in Liverpool, Glasgow and Dublin.

The operator, which already has 19 restaurants open in the UK, will open at Liverpool One. Cosmo has taken a 11,128 sq ft restaurant at the shopping centre on a new 15-year lease.

The Glasgow restaurant will be located in St Enoch Centre leisure quarter.  A third restaurant in Dublin restaurants is also set to open later this year.

Cosmo first launched in the UK market in 2017 and aims to secure a further five sites in 2020 throughout the UK and Ireland.

“Consumer demand for Asian cuisine is at an all-time high, so, in spite of the headwinds within the wider F&B sector, Cosmo has been able to stand out from the crowd,” said Carlene Hughes, leisure director at Savills, who represent Cosmo.
