Retail bakery chain Muffin Break has revealed the locations of four new stores.

Opening early in December, the four sites will be based in Camberley, Romford, Birkenhead and Hull.  Each will be around 1,500sq ft, provide 60-80 covers, and will create up to 14 jobs.

Muffin Break revealed in August that it had plans to increase its UK portfolio to 75 stores and open 15 sites in the next 12 months.

The new sites will be based in shopping centres to give customers increased exposure to the brand and maximise footfall for franchisees, according to the chain.

“We’re delighted Muffin Break is really taking off in the UK and we’re now rapidly expanding into new areas,” said Josh Nixon, head of estates at Muffin Break.

“We’ve revamped our cafés, giving them a new-look, rustic feel. All this is helping to bring people through the door.”

The remaining 11 cafés are expected to be open before the end of June next year.
