(Reuters) - Restaurant Group Plc, the owner of the Frankie & Benny's chain, reported a 57% jump in total sales for the 19-week period ending May 12, boosted by the recent acquisition of noodle chain Wagamama and new pub openings.

The company, which operates restaurants and pubs in the UK under brands such as Chiquito and Coast To Coast, said its pubs business for the reported period, traded ahead of the overall pub restaurant sector. []

Restaurant Group had acquired Wagamama for 357 million pounds in cash last October.
