Three food and drink operators will be opening new branches in Manchester early this year, further adding to the city’s booming food and beverage industry.
Global real estate firm, Cushman & Wakefield has agreed deals with Doner Haus, Archie’s and the new UK entrant Café Delhi, to bring their respective businesses into the city.
Delhi-based business and casual dining group Café Delhi Heights are set to open their first international branch at Manchester’s The Corn Exchange in spring. Taking up 6,158 sq ft across 2-storeys, the restaurant serves familiar comfort food from around the world including native dishes as the usual stables of pizza, burgers and more.
Also opening at The Corn Exchange is Doner Haus, who will be taking the premises vacated by Byron Hamburgers. Seating 180 people, the 4,781 sq ft multi-storey unit will serve Berlin-style kebabs, currywurst and more iconic German cuisine.
The final new opening is fast-food chain Archie’s – a ‘Burgers – Shakes & Waffles’ specialist, the chain will be opening a 6,742 sq ft shop at intu’s Trafford Centre, making its fourth branch in the city.
Commenting on the new deals that Cushman helped to secure, George Lowe, Surveyor in Cushman & Wakefield’s Retail Agency team said: “Manchester’s reputation as an F&B hotspot continued to strengthen in 2019, supported by a number of high-profile deals. Lettings across the region’s prime schemes, such as intu Trafford Centre and The Corn Exchange, were complemented by the continued growth of more niche F&B locations, such as Ancoats and The Northern Quarter.”
