Premium burger brand Five Guys is poised to launch a ‘City flagship’ after securing a prime central London site.
It will operate a ground floor location spanning 3,500 square feet at Bishopsgate in The City.
The American-style burger restaurant said the unit will open for both takeaway services and sit-down meals once it has been fitted out this summer.
The chain has leased the site from Shelley Sandzer, which helped Five Guys find its first UK site in Covent Garden in 2013 as well as its 100th site at St. Paul’s in 2019.
Earlier this year, the chain opened a 3,000 square feet site in Walthamstow, which it also leased from the firm.
It has been in full operation since lockdown restrictions lifted last month.
Nick Weir, managing partner at Shelley Sandzer, said: “It is wonderful to have played such an influential part in Five Guys’ history, and the brand’s popularity and success in the UK is exactly why we work to bring international brands to the UK for the first time.
“Five Guy’s creation of a brand new flagship in Bishopsgate, alongside their recently launched site in Walthamstow, is a vote of confidence in the hospitality sector, and we are proud to be a part of the brand’s exponential national growth as the industry rebounds post-pandemic.”
