RESDIARY, the online restaurant reservation specialist, has signalled plans to increase its headcount by one-third as it moved to bigger head office premises in Glasgow city centre.

The business, created by former restaurateur Mike Conyers, has leased more than 4,730 square feet on the third floor of the Culzean Building on Renfield Street to meet growing demand for its services. It comes as ResDiary, which handles reservations for more than 6,200 restaurants in 54 countries, plans to increase its headcount in the city to 60 from 45 by next spring.

The company, which is also on track to double its overseas workforce to 20 by March 2018, had previously been based in Bothwell Street and moved to cope with growing demand for its services.

ResDiary has made the switch in the year it celebrates its 10th anniversary, with the business on track to turn over in excess of £5 million for the first time.

The company’s clients include leading chef patrons Tom Kitchin and Martin Wishart, the Houses of Parliament and Royal Opera House.

Mr Conyers launched the business after a high-profile restaurant career, which saw him build and operate Glasgow venues such as D’Arcy’s, 78 St Vincent Street, Leonardo & Company and Metropolitan.

The Culzean deal was brokered by Cushman & Wakefield, with the property firm also letting the fourth floor to an as yet unnamed insurance firm. The company will use it as the base for its Scottish headquarters and employ 54 staff in the building from this month.

Originally home to James Woodhouse & Son, the carpet maker and upholsterer, the Culzean Building was known as the Prudential building for many years.
