The owner of a London-based restaurant business has been looking at sites in York to open a new venue.
Fulham Shore directors have been checking out locations in the city with a view to open a restaurant here.
The brand operates two chains. Franco Manca is a pizzeria which uses freshly made sour dough for its pizzas, and specialises in Neapolitan-inspired food.
The Real Greek chain serves food from the delicious and healthy diet of the Eastern Mediterranean.
Bosses have been viewing a flurry of sites at cities including York, Newcastle and Manchester.
Some of the potential sites are restaurants closed by the pandemic. They come as “pre-existing fitted” units with lower opening costs – and the group therefore expects a reduction in its capital spending.
“The group continues to be presented with a number of excellent potential retail locations, almost on a daily basis,” it said in a statement.
“The board hopes that Fulham Shore can contribute towards the revival of town centres with new restaurant openings as the Covid-19 restrictions ease.
“We look forward to recruiting many new staff members to our great teams at Franco Manca and The Real Greek in preparation for the new restaurants that we intend to open.”
