The director of the Olive Tree Brasserie, Dean Wilson, has selected his hometown of Lytham as next site for expansion of the Greek/Mediterranean brand.
This follows the recent opening of the restaurant in the Stockton Heath area in Cheshire. Wilson has now focused on opening another 110 seater venue on Dickinson Terrace, before the autumn.
Wilson, who has a ten year legacy of generating modern, fresh, Greek-inspired cuisine, said opening in Lytham’s ‘restaurant hub and foodie quarter’ was a dream come true.
The site is a former NatWest Bank building and will be designed with exposed copper piping and geometric patterned tiles throughout. The new site will also feature Olive Tree Brasseries’ signature weekly live music each Friday night, an extensively stocked wine, beer and cocktail bar, as well as a private dining room and function space.
The new Olive Tree Brasserie at Bank House, Dicconson Terrace is expected to create 30 jobs for the local area and Wilson plans to use local tradesmen during the construction.
He said: “We’ve been waiting for the right site to come along for us to set up in Lytham and we’re beat off stiff competition from some fantastic restaurant groups, to secure this spot. As soon as planning permission was granted we were straight in and have already made really great headway. We’re very excited to finally be opening a site in Lytham after wanting to do this since starting the brand – can’t wait to open the doors.
“It’s important that when diners come and visit one of our venues that they feel they are getting the real Olive Tree Brasserie experience… fresh, delicious food, beautiful surroundings and a great atmosphere, helped along by our staff and a good soundtrack.”
