Scottish wood-fired pizza chain Mozza is to open its first site in England this summer, at White Rose shopping complex in Leeds.
The business has secured a 2,270 square foot unit on the upper level of the building, which houses a large food and drink quarter.
Mozza will take its place alongside a number of local and regional operators, including Frankster’s, Five Guys and Wagamama.
Mozza creates carefully crafted and authentic Neapolitan pizza, produced by skilled chefs trained in the art of wood-fired ovens.
The brand has six restaurants throughout Scotland and has chosen White Rose as the first step in expansion plans into England and the rest of the UK.
Owner Giuseppe Marini said: “It’s extremely exciting to be opening up our first site in England, highlighting the strength of Mozza as a brand. We’re thrilled to soon open our doors and welcome locals and visitors alike.”
White Rose is a leading regional destination for Leeds and Yorkshire, with more than 800,000 square feet of retail, dining and leisure space.
