Burger chain Byron is expanding into Wales after agreeing terms on a site in St David’s shopping centre in Cardiff.
The company has bagged a 5,150 sq ft restaurant, set across two levels, on Grand Arcade, and will begin fit-out work ahead of its opening in summer 2017.
The new location will benefit from an external frontage and is situated close to John Lewis and the popular leisure offer Treetop Adventure Golf.
Paul Coppin, marketing director at Byron, commented: “We couldn’t be happier to be bringing proper hamburgers to Wales. Over the years we’ve had more and more customers ask when we’ll be opening here, so it’s a real pleasure to finally be able to give them the answer they’re looking for.”
The brand will sit alongside other casual dining restaurants in the shopping centre and is also likely to benefit from the close proximity to the main events venue in Cardiff.
Wahaca, Wagamama and Jamie’s Italian are among the names that already operate restaurants in St David’s.
In addition Caffè Nero has also just opened a 1,142 sq ft café, located on Cathedral Walk, at the site.
St David’s is anchored by the largest John Lewis outside London, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer, and also has 200 other shops and restaurants.
