Pepe’s Piri Piri restaurant is set to open its first restaurant in Stafford on 2 April following a six-figure funding package from HSBC UK, secured by franchisees Omar and Abu Javed.

Following the success of the entrepreneur’s first Pepe’s Piri Piri restaurant in Shropshire, the well-known flame-grilled chicken shop will open on the busy Stone Road this month, with the HSBC UK funding being used to purchase and fit-out the 2000 sq. ft. site. Creating up to 20 job opportunities for the local community, the new restaurant will seat up to 28 diners and provide both a casual dining and delivery/ takeaway service. The restaurant will also feature on all major food delivery sites.

The Mayor of Stafford Borough will attend the restaurant’s grand opening and guests will be able to enjoy 20 per cent off the menu for the first 7 days to celebrate its launch.


Omar Javed, Pepe’s Piri Piri Franchisee, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Pepe’s Piri Piri to Stafford with the support of HSBC UK and to be investing in this fantastic town. We’ll be hosting our grand opening on the 2nd of April and there will be some amazing offers available for our first customers, who we can’t wait to meet.”


Molly Jahans, Franchise Relationship Manager at HSBC UK, added: “After the success of Omar and Abu’s recent opening in Shropshire, it’s great to help the business grow across the West Midlands and beyond. The brothers are committed to the Pepe’s Piri Piri brand and the positive impact it can have by creating jobs for the local community.”
