Renowned handcrafted burger and fries company Five Guys is set to bring its unique brand of burgers to Cheltenham’s High Street, taking a new lease at The Brewery Quarter as part of its continuing success story.
The new restaurant which joins the £80M retail and leisure development in the heart of Cheltenham town centre is expected to open in October this year taking a prime position (12a) in the centre of the development next to both the existing leisure offer and the brand new retail units that have recently been made available to let.
The company which has a cult following around the world originally started in 1986 in Washington DC. In 2003 the business started to offer franchise opportunities and now in 2017 the business has in excess of 1,500 locations spanning around the world with the 70th UK store opening later this month.
The restaurant which champions its freezer free, fresh offer will take a 2,454sq ft unit and will create 35 new jobs in Cheltenham, with a mix of full time and part time work available.
Phil Martin, Martin Commercial properties director said: “This is great news to officially confirm that Five Guys is coming to The Brewery Quarter – and for burger fans in Gloucestershire. Five Guys is a highly sought-after restaurant chain with a huge following amongst burger lovers. Selecting The Brewery Quarter is a huge coo to the development and its fantastic offer within the centre of Cheltenham.”
Over the last year The Brewery Quarter has welcomed a number of new tenants to the development including Cosy Club, Soho Coffee Company, Mr Mulligans Lost World of Golf, Tesco Express and IVI UK Clinic.
Five Guys head of property, Neville Maling, said: “We’re delighted to confirm we will be bringing our unique brand of handcrafted burgers to The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham and look forward to opening later in the year.”
