Cornwall-born bar and restaurant, Hub Box, will be opening its first ever Dorset establishment in early October.
The new 120-seat premises in Brewery Square, Dorchester, will be the 12th opening for the burger and beer restaurant group, with venues spanning the south west and beyond.
Despite the pandemic, Hub Box opened three new restaurants in lockdown and reported record sales of £12.6 million earlier this year.
Hub Box founder and CEO, Richard Boon, said: “Brewery Square is a thriving destination in Dorset’s county town which lends itself perfectly as a location for our restaurant. As a proud south west business, we believe in choosing areas which celebrate local culture and drive awareness of independent businesses.
“Our Dorchester restaurant signifies a milestone in our journey as we venture into a new county, bringing job opportunities to the area and growing our passionate team culture. It’s a truly exciting time for Hub Box and we’re looking forward to welcoming the Dorset community through our doors this autumn.”
