1,200 sq.ft is the ideal size, however we’ll consider bigger and smaller.

Ideally units with parking

We require Hot Food Takeaway consent.

Either will be considered.

Additional Questions:

What are the main challenges you face when acquiring new property?

Planning! Although we do have a high success rate in achieving a positive outcome, planning is often the biggest challenge. Most other challenges we can get around. There’s not a lot we haven’t seen opening 1200+ stores.

Favourite occupier?

My local chippy! The store hasn’t been updated since the 80’s but they still serve the best Fish and Chips.

What is your favourite building?

Empire State building – I went to New York as a child and was blown away by the sheer size of the building. Also Elland Road, Leeds.

Favourite retail destination?

Unfortunately, a lot of cities and towns have similar high streets with the same retailers and cafes etc. I like towns that feel a little bit more independent, such as Holt in Norfolk and Ecclesall Road, Sheffield
