Sovereign Centros has announced that chicken wing restaurant, Wingstop, is set to open its next West Midlands restaurant later this year, at Merry Hill.
The award-winning Wingstop will occupy a 2,650sq ft unit on Merry Hill’s upper mall, serving its signature wings opposite the recently opened wagamama, and diversifying the line-up of dining options as part of the destination’s emerging leisure quarter. This is formed around the recently launched Hollywood Bowl, creating a family-friendly hub for eating and entertainment.
Alistair Winning, asset manager at Sovereign Centros, commented: “Wingstop has international renown, so it makes for an ideal addition to our culinary line-up at Merry Hill. Alongside the successful opening of wagamama earlier this year and Hollywood Bowl more recently, the upcoming arrival of Wingstop is evidence of the continued growth we’re seeing at Merry Hill, particularly for our new leisure quarter. We look forward to seeing Wingstop open later this year, adding an extra layer of choice to an already incredibly diverse collection of brands here.”
Tom Grogan, co-founder and director of Wingstop UK, added: “Launching our latest Wingstop location at Merry Hill represents not only our commitment to expanding Wingstop nationwide but also our dedication to becoming a staple in the West Midlands. Having already been warmly embraced in Birmingham, we’re thrilled to bring our unique flavours and experience to even more fans in the region. Joining the vibrant community of F&B retailers within the destination is a prospect we’re eagerly looking forward to.”
This announcement follows the recent openings of wagamama and Hollywood Bowl, and the signing of fried chicken restaurant Sides, combining with Wingstop to create a hub of dining and entertainment within Merry Hill.
