Four new Revolución de Cubas open in time for the festive season

Revolution Bars Group plc, the operator of the Revolution and Revolución de Cuba brands announces today that it will have successfully opened four Revolución de Cuba bars in the last eight weeks of 2016 as part of its stated expansion plans to open five new sites per financial year. The Revolución de Cuba brand is driven by premium Cuban rums and creative, handmade cocktails, with food influences from across Latin America.   

These openings are strategically timed to benefit from the festive season. Reading, Aberdeen and Harrogate have now opened and a further Revolución de Cuba is set to open mid-December in Glasgow which takes the number of bars in Scotland to five.  Currently, Revolution Bars Group's estate totals 65 bars with 12 Revolución de Cubas and 53 Revolution bars. Overall, this expansion creates in excess of 400 new jobs.

Boasting 5700 square feet across two floors this 170-cover site features a retractable roof on the first floor, which will be used year round to accommodate 40 additional covers with a heated terrace. It complements the Revolution that has operated in Reading for a number of years.

Mark McQuater, CEO said:

"Our stated strategy is to open 5 new bars each year. We will have opened four new Revolución de Cubas in the last 8 weeks and more than doubled the number of Revolución de Cubas, now 12 bars, in little over 18 months, a testament to the strength of the concept and brand. The early opening profile in H1 will benefit the Company for the year to come. Looking ahead we have a strong pipeline of sites."
