Leisure sector specialist Medlock FRB has completed the fit-out of two new casual dining venues at Manchester Arndale’s new £11m food quarter.
Medlock has fitted out units for Barburrito and WOLF at Halle Place, a new hub which will comprise 10 restaurants and a café when it is completed.
It is being created over two levels through the redevelopment of the 25,000 sq ft space previously known as Halle Square.
Arndale owners M&G Real Estate and Intu have undertaken the scheme to improve the centre’s food and drink provision and provide a ‘whole day’ retail and leisure destination.
Oldham-based Medlock carried out a six-week contract to fit out a 2,100sq ft unit for the UK’s first Mexican food chain, Barburrito. The restaurant can accommodate up to 74 diners. Medlock has previously delivered a scheme for Barburrito in Gateshead.
WOLF, an Italian street food concept, is a new client for Medlock, which fitted out a 1,100 sq ft site in a five-week project. The venue, which has up to 40 covers, is the first in the city for WOLF.
Both WOLF and Barburrito have external seating in the Halle Place atrium.
Medlock managing director Andy Dunster said: “The new Halle Place food hub development is a testament to growing success of the food and drink culture we’ve been seeing in recent years and we are delighted to be part of this scheme.
“Winning repeat business from a client is always a huge compliment to the hard work and dedication put in the Medlock team. Working at the same development with new client WOLF as well is a great achievement for the business.”
