TV chef Gino D’Acampo and Individual Restaurants have announced plans to open restaurants in stores operated by fashion and homeware retailer Next.
The first collaboration will take place at the retailer’s 70,000 square foot store at Kingswood Retail Park in Hull, which opened in last year.
This will be followed by a branch at Manchester’s Arndale shopping centre, Next’s largest store, which is currently undergoing a refurbishment.
Both restaurants are scheduled to open in November 2017. They will feature an open kitchen, deli bar, a book and grocery store and a Prosecco bar.
The Hull store will serve 210 covers.
A spokesperson for D’Acampo said that his price points would be “accessible to all”, which fits with Next’s profile.
The partnership will be supported by Steven Walker, founder of restaurant operator Individual Restaurants. It operates almost 40 restaurants around the UK.
