Silk Rd is gearing up for its busiest year yet in 2019 with expansion plans that will see the restaurant launch on Liverpool’s Hope Street, opening its fourth venue in just two years.
The new venue addition comes after a prolific year for owners Chris Williams and Javier Mellado who already have a trio of restaurants in Heswall, Liverpool City Centre’s Beetham Plaza and Bramhall.
Following the success of Silk Rd’s first site launch in July 2017, the business duo have welcomed approximately 70,000 guests to their restaurants and employed over 100 people across the North West.
“We’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy a successful year with Silk Rd that has afforded us the option to expand across the North West with locations in Wirral, Liverpool and Bramhall and our ambitious plans don’t stop here. Although 2018 has been exceptionally busy for us and has seen us open a further two sites and expand into a whole new city, next year is about continuing our growth and we’re excited at the prospect of opening yet another location for our diners to enjoy.
“We can’t wait to welcome in the new year with a fourth restaurant under the Silk Rd brand. Liverpool has a thriving food and drink scene and since we launched in 2017, we always planned on having a dominant presence here and it’s incredibly rewarding to see our goals come to life. Having already established ourselves in the heart of the Business District, we have set our sights on the more bohemian Hope Street, which has an upmarket yet contemporary vibe that we feel suits our concept perfectly.”
Taking inspiration from the Silk Road trail, which spans three continents from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, the restaurant brand serves up authentic cuisine in the form of small plates and tapas.
“As well as constantly planning for growth, we’re also exploring new ways in which we can improve our service and will be looking to add new, exciting additions to our menu in the coming months. Although we have built a loyal customer following in the region, we are always eager to welcome new faces and by opening in Hope Street we hope to see new customers as well as returning customers who want to enjoy a different take on our restaurant. Keep your eyes peeled and watch this space!”
