Casual dining chain Carluccio’s has launched another department store site after opening a restaurant in Colchester’s Williams & Griffin.
The operation, which is in the centre of the Essex town’s high street, replaces a self-service restaurant that was previously based on the premises.
Williams & Griffin is owned by Fenwick and is understood to be undergoing a £30m revamp. The addition of Carluccio’s provides a quality and affordable foodservice offering for customers.
The restaurant is located on the second floor of the four storey building and will offer an authentic Italian menu.
The tie-up builds on an existing partnership between the two businesses as Carluccio’s also operates restaurants at Fenwick branches in York, Canterbury and London.
Williams & Griffin describes the restaurant as the “perfect pit stop for breakfast, a light lunch or late afternoon refreshment”.
