Chief executive Paul Gilchrist said: "We’re so excited to be opening. As an East London-born brand, this is a big step for us and we can’t wait to share our offering with a new audience."

Founded by Matt Harris, the business has been backed by private equity firm Trispan since January 2019.

The brand bagged first prize at the world’s biggest chicken wing festival - Wing Fest - in 2015 for its chipuffalo wings. It showcased two recipes at this year's event.

There have been a number of signings at Westfield since indoor hospitality reopened, with more than 85 food and drink outlets now at the centre.
