Kornicis to expand after festive sales growth

KamiqueKornicis Group, which operates Jamies, Smollensky’s and other bars and restaurants around London, is on course for expansion after a Christmas sales uplift.

It has reported a 5.5% increase in like-for-like sales in its City of London and Canary Wharf heartland in the five weeks covering the run-up to Christmas and New Year.

Total sales for the group showed a 7.2% increase, marking its fifth consecutive year of strong growth in the festive period.

Kornicis Group has now delivered compound sales growth of 5% per year over a five-year period despite “a continued challenging trading environment”.

Chief executive Nick Tamblyn said: “The quality of our product offering and the strength of our brands enabled Kornicis to deliver another strong set of December numbers.

“Our staff have worked tirelessly to ensure our customers had first-rate festive experiences, with guest feedback reaching new levels.

“The strong Christmas results set Kornicis up well for further acquisitions of London sites in 2014, and we look forward to continue building our strong product offering and loyal customer base.”

Last year, the group expanded with a new cocktail bar, Kamique (pictured), in Covent Garden in London’s West End.
