Surbiton boulangerie and patisserie The French Tarte has revealed ambitions to open five outlets in Surrey before 2017.

Its second site is to open mid-March, in Teddington – a new area for the business – and will mark the start of an expansion project by the family-owned company.

The French Tarte is sistered with The French Table Restaurant, also located in Surbiton.

Eric Guignard, owner, will oversee the menu at both bakery sites. Cakes, pastries, savoury dishes and sandwiches will be centrally prepared on the business’ kitchens in Surbiton and then delivered to the Teddington branch daily.
