Nando’s is coming to intu Potteries…

Submitted by on August 27, 2014 – 6:00 am |

intu Potteries leisure.The lure and popularity of Nando’s infamous PERi-PERi chicken resulted in a proactive Facebook campaign to bring a restaurant to Stoke-on-Trent. Now, that hoping is being turned into reality.

Nando’s Restaurants has signed a lease on 5,500 sq ft of space at the £20 million catering and leisure extension at intu Potteries. Nando’s was the top name specifically requested by people in the public consultation, which gave overwhelming support for the plans.

Peter Atkinson, senior acquisitions manager at Nando’s Restaurants, said: “The Nando’s restaurant at intu Potteries will be a great meeting place for the people of Staffordshire and surrounding areas. The location adds to our wide coverage of the UK and our busy restaurants in Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham.”

Nando’s will join Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Chiquito, PizzaExpress and Frankie & Benny’s together with a 1,100 seat, nine screen Cineworld at the extension to the shopping centre. Construction work has already started on site with opening scheduled for August 2015.

Paul Francis, General Manager of intu Potteries, said: “Stoke-on-Trent is a rapidly changing area that is underserved by big name restaurants. With Staffordshire University moving 2,500 students to the city, and a catchment for intu Potteries of 850,000, Nando’s will be a buzzing place and a welcomed addition to the range of top brands at the centre.”

Lunson Mitchenall acted for intu; and JLL acted for Nando’s.
