Landsec has announced the signing of three F&B operators – Five Guys, Taco Bell, and Pollo To Go – at Xscape Yorkshire in Castleford, the county’s largest dedicated leisure and entertainment destination, adjacent to Junction 32 Outlet.
Premium burger brand, Five Guys, has added to its growing UK portfolio with a 2,347 sq ft unit. Taco Bell has secured a 1,599 sq ft restaurant space. And Pollo To Go, a concept from the team behind Yorkshire-based Tomahawk Steakhouse, will open its third in the UK, and first not on a high street, covering 967 sq ft.
Commenting on the lettings, Russell Loveland, senior portfolio director at Landsec, said: “Enhancing and diversifying our food and beverage offering is something we are looking to do across our entire portfolio, and at Xscape Yorkshire these three signings help us do just that. Whether enjoying one of our many leisure experiences here, or outlet shopping over the road at Junction 32 Outlet, the combination of Five Guys, Taco Bell, and Pollo To Go add great variety, and we know that Pollo to Go’s Yorkshire twist will appeal to our guests.”
Sadie Eggleston, area manager for Pollo To Go, commented: “Our brand was born during last year’s lockdown, and we have come a long way. To sign for our third UK site, and first outside of the traditional high street setting, is an indication of the growing interest in our food, which has been incredibly popular with customers over the past year. We are delighted to be joining an established leisure destination, and look forward to bringing the Pollo To Go offer to Castleford.”
