GBK contributed £35m in revenue to Famous Brands

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) contributed £35m in revenue to Famous Brands in the 20 weeks following its acquisition by the South African group last October. The results to 28 February 2017 also show GBK generated £2m in operating profit during this period and that like-for-like sales outperformed the market average. The figures are included in Famous Brands’ annual report, in which the group said it was optimistic about prospects for the UK market. Famous Brands said: “Management is satisfied that the integration of GBK into the business has proceeded according to the programme and is optimistic that the operation will add significant value to the group over time.”
