Viva Brazil - Liverpool-based Brazilian restaurant - SantanderCB

Liverpool-based Brazilian restaurant chain Viva Brazil is to further expand across the UK, with a new site in Birmingham planned for a mid-May opening.

It will add to existing restaurants in Glasgow, Cardiff and Newcastle, and there are plans for more openings around the country.

The development follows a £900,000 Growth Capital funding deal with Santander Corporate & Commercial. The money will be used to assist with the fit-out and general trading of the new Birmingham restaurant.

The facility is part of the bank's Breakthrough product suite, which is aimed at fast-growth, ambitious businesses.

Phillip Roscoe, Relationship Director, Santander Corporate & Commercial, added: 'Viva Brazil's rapid growth is a testament to the success and popularity of its unique style. Santander is thrilled to be backing the management team on their latest endeavour as they build on their portfolio in Birmingham and we fully support them as they look forward to further expansion.'
