Clutch of F&B brands to open at Meadowhall including new coffee shop concept

British Land, joint owner of Meadowhall, Yorkshire’s premier shopping centre, has secured over 21,000 sq ft of new lettings and upsizes in the last three months. The news comes as the first phase of Meadowhall’s £60m refurbishment nears completion.

Nespresso, the market leader in premium portioned coffee, will open a kiosk later this month. The kiosk is the brand’s first in the region and stocks the full range of Nespresso products.

Coffika, a new coffee concept, will be making its UK debut with a 900 sq ft cafe on the Arcade. Also, Pret A Manger is launching a new 2,300 sq ft cafe, its first at Meadowhall.

In the Oasis Dining Quarter, Barburrito, Wrapchic and Subway are all making Meadowhall debuts. In addition, Australian tea specialist, T2, independent modern gourmet confectioner, Treat Kitchen, and candy store, Gobstoppers, have recently opened at the centre.

Francisco Nogueira, Nespresso UK & Ireland Managing Director, commented, “Our consumers are telling us they want great accessibility to Nespresso boutiques so we’re thrilled to be expanding our retail offering and opening in Meadowhall.

'Over the past few years we have seen fantastic growth across the UK and we receive almost daily requests for more boutiques to open in the north of England.”

The news coincides with the first phase of the centre’s £60m refurbishment programme nearing completion, with both levels of The Arcade, from M&S to the iconic central dome benefiting from an extensive makeover.
