Authentic Greek restaurant brand The Real Greek has chosen Trafford Centre as a key location in its expansion into Northern England, set to open in February 2021. Taking a 4,700 sq ft unit in the centre’s food court, The Real Greek will be adding its authentic Greek and Eastern Mediterranean menu to the existing 39 restaurants on offer, bringing even more diversity to the centre’s food court.
Having launched in London in 1999, The Real Greek quickly established a firm foothold in the Capital’s F&B market with its modern Greek cuisine and relaxed restaurants. With a proven, successful model in place, the brand rolled out across the capital before expanding further across the South of England, taking it to its current total of 21 restaurants, plus ‘Greek on the Street’, a Souvlaki Shop inspired by Greek street food culture. The Real Greek is now ready for its foray into the North.
With its relaxed Mediterranean décor and good value offering, The Real Greek menu caters for everyone, from meat-eaters to pescatarians, vegetarians to vegans, featuring traditional and contemporary Greek meze dishes, flame-grilled meats, souvlaki wraps, and salads.
Nabil Mankarious, Managing Director of The Real Greek commented, “The last few years have been amazing and we’ve been delighted at the way people have embraced The Real Greek and everything it represents. We are excited to be taking the brand to the North of England and the Trafford Centre is an obvious choice for one of our first northern restaurants. Manchester has a huge foodie scene and it’s only right that The Real Greek becomes a part of this at the region’s biggest retail and leisure destination.”
Rhys Evans, Director of Asset Management at The Trafford Centre commented, “The Real Greek is an important addition to Trafford Centre’s food and drink offering. It is an exciting and unique brand, so we are proud to be supporting this restaurant brand in its expansion into the Northern food scene. The restaurant and its authentic Greek flavours offer something completely fresh for the centre and we have no doubt it will prove a popular addition.”
