Manchester Arndale expands its thriving food scene

  • Doner Shack has signed a 15-year lease on a 2,800 sq ft unit in Halle Place at Manchester Arndale
  • It will join Pizza Luxe – as it prepares to open its second store in the UK
  • Gloria Jean’s will open on the central mall kiosk

Manchester Arndale has announced Doner Shack and Gloria Jean’s as the newest food and beverage signings at the centre, with Pizza Luxe also preparing to open.

Gloria Jean’s opened its first store in a small town outside of Chicago in 1979. Gloria Jean Kvetko was a young mother who had dreamt of opening a coffee shop- combining her passion for caffeine and meeting people. After 40 years, Gloria Jean’s now serves coffee in more than 50 countries around the world.

Halle Place, the centre’s fast-growing food hub, will welcome Doner Shack. Doner Shack will sell a mix of authentic kebabs using different ingredients – including halloumi, falafel, and chilli. Pizza Luxe is also preparing to open at Halle Place and will serve freshly made deluxe pizzas and breakfast bowls.

Scott Linard, portfolio director at M&G Real Estate, comments: “Halle Place is establishing itself as one of Manchester’s most popular casual dining destinations. Archie’s, Barburitto and Wolf Street Food already offer something unique, which is clearly attractive to our customers. The arrival of Doner Shack and Pizza Luxe will only add to the distinctive appeal of Halle Place to visitors.

“Gloria Jean’s is renowned for its high-quality coffee and beverages. It is a perfect destination for our customers to relax.

“Being able to welcome a trio of new food and beverage operators is a testament to Manchester Arndale’s position as one of the leading shopping centres in the UK. The centre has remained robust and resilient during 2020 and we are confident we will continue to add to our strong F&B offering throughout 2021 and beyond.”

Co-founder and managing director of Doner Shack, said: “Coming from humble beginnings, we are evolving into a multi-site business with big plans for the future. We feel incredibly excited to be opening in Manchester Arndale.

“We want our lean high-quality kebabs to be a part of everyday life. Whether that’s a snack on the go during a busy lunch break or a fun evening with a group of friends.

“It is time for a new generation of street food, and we are thrilled to be leading the way.”
