Restaurant chain Balans that has been welcoming LGBT+ customers for 23 years is selling all its London units. The brand was born as a sandwich shop in 1987 on Old Compton Street, the heart of London’s LGBT+ scene.
Since then it has expanded across the UK capital and even to Miami. It currently has seven London sites. These include two on Old Compton Street and units in Ealing, Victoria, Kensington, as well as in the Westfield London and Westfield Stratford shopping malls.
