Revolution Bars revenue up 10.6% to £73.7m

Manchester-based Revolution Bars Group plc said its revenue for the 26 weeks to December 30, 2017, rose 10.6% to £73.7 million.

Revolution said four new venues opened during this period — Revolucion de Cuba Belfast in July, and Revolutions in Solihull, Inverness and Putney all opened in late December.

Interim results will be published on March 2, 2018, and Revolution’s board expects trading results to be in line with its expectations, reflecting continued growth in the number of venues, revenue and profits.

Revolution Bars Group executive chairman Keith Edelman said: I am delighted with our sales performance in the second quarter and over Christmas.

“This is the fifth year that the group has recorded record results over the key trading period and again demonstrates the appeal of our brands.

“This excellent result underlines that the group is delivering on its strategy of expanding the two brands whilst continuing to drive like for like growth in the core estate.”
