Wine producer and café, Veeno, is to open its first London-based, franchised site at The Griffin Centre, Kingston-upon-Thames, on 26 October.

Bringing Italy’s after-work culture of “drinking, nibbling and relaxing” to the UK capital, the new venue will serve its family-grown Sicilian wine (from co-founder Nino Caruso’s family vineyard in Marsala, Sicily), as well as a selection of Italian appetizers, including meat and cheese platters, imported from Italian producers.

Co-founders Nino Caruso and Andrea Zecchino said: "We are extremely excited to open the first franchised site in the Greater London area and this is just the beginning of further expansion (planned) in the next 12 months.

“We believe that this location is the perfect venue to bring our authentic Italian offering, and we wish every success to the manager Tom and our franchise partners Derek and Sharon."

Franchise partners, Derek and Sharon, added: “We are hugely excited to be the first franchisees to bring Veeno to the London Market, in Kingston-Upon-Thames.

“Veeno is much more than a wine bar or restaurant: it is a unique experience, which has delighted and excited customers in every other market that Veeno serves. We experienced our first taste of Veeno in Manchester, where the Veeno journey began, and have been deeply passionate about the Veeno experience ever since.

“We chose to open in Kingston because it is such a beautiful and vibrant place, steeped in history overlooking the Thames.”

Now on its sixteenth venue, the group – co-founded by Nino Caruso & Andrea Zecchino in 2013 – also operates cafes in Bristol, Leeds and Edinburgh, with plans for further expansion in the next year.
