Restaurant operator North Fish, represented by Savills office in London, is seeking its first UK sites after opening 40 across Poland since 2002. The tenant, advised by Savills Warsaw office, is planning to continue its expansion also on the Polish market.
The established chain of quick service restaurants specializes in healthy fish and seafood dishes as well as burgers, wraps, sandwiches, soups and smoothies. Following its success in shopping centre and high street locations in Poland, the brand is seeking similar high footfall sites of 56 sqm to 139 sqm in the UK, including in transport hubs.
David Bell, Head of UK Leisure at Savills, commented: “North Fish has seen a clear gap in the UK ‘grab and go’ market for high quality fish dishes. The brand has undergone impressive growth in Poland and we look forward to supporting its UK expansion, initially with sites in major shopping centers followed by a wider roll out.”
Krzysztof Wyrzykowski, Senior Leasing Manager in Retail Advisory & Transactions Department at Savills in Poland, commented: “We are happy that, following our good cooperation in Poland, North Fish decided to work with Savills also on global markets. Apart from North Fish expansion plans in the UK, the company continues to look for new locations in Poland.”
