M&G Real Estate and intu, joint owners of shopping centre Manchester Arndale, have announced that Pizzaluxe will be joining the line-up at the centre’s casual dining destination, Halle Place.
The pizza restaurant has agreed a 2,000 sq ft location on a 10 year lease. Pizzaluxe originally started life as a market stall in London’s Brick Lane, and now has restaurants in Leeds and Manchester Airport.
The restaurant, which will be located at the corner plot, opposite Archie’s and ShoeZone, is due to open this summer and will serve freshly made deluxe pizzas, breakfast pizzas and breakfast bowls, as well as artisan coffee, cocktails and soft drinks.
Scott Linard, director of asset management at M&G Real Estate, said on behalf of the joint owners: “Halle Place already offers a variety of culinary styles, which is testament to Manchester Arndale’s prominent location and all-day offer.
“We see PizzaLuxe as the perfect addition to this exciting dining mix and are looking forward to announcing more exciting new restaurants in the near future.”
Paul Goodale, founder of Pizzaluxe, added: “From our humble beginnings selling Pizza from a market stall, we have evolved into a multi-site business with big plans for the future.
“Pizzaluxe is ideal for office workers looking for a delicious, speedy lunch, alongside shoppers that want a quick bite to eat. We’re looking forward to introducing visitors to Manchester Arndale to our super-fast, super-thin pizzas and bespoke cocktails.”
Manchester Arndale is one of the UK’s largest city centre shopping malls, and welcomes over 40 million visitors per annum.
