Nando's to open second branch in York
1:19pm Tuesday 24th December 2013 in News
RESTAURANT chain Nando’s has been confirmed as the latest addition to a new £90 million shopping complex on the edge of York.
The firm will occupy one of the units at the Vangarde Shopping Park at Monks Cross, which includes new John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Next stores and is due to open by Easter. The firm already has a branch in High Ousegate in the city-centre.
Nando’s will join chains including Giraffe, Frankie & Benny’s, Prezzo and Costa Coffee at the development, which has unlocked £13.75 million of funding for the city’s neighbouring community stadium and will create 1,000 new jobs.
Two more restaurant announcements for the complex - which will also have a Hotel Chocolat in John Lewis - are still to be announced, with another name expected to be confirmed within the next week.
Richard France, managing director of Vangarde developers The Oakgate Group, which is part-owned by Caddick Group, said: “To attract Nando’s to the restaurant line-up adds another dimension to the already exciting food offer.
“York is maintaining its position as a key regional shopping destination and Vangarde can boast one of the best retail line-ups in the UK. We’ve worked hard to create an exciting mix of restaurants and retail units and we’re looking forward to opening to the public in April.”
