Gino D’Acampo’s first Italian fast-casual dining offer, My Coffee & Deli Bar, has expanded just eight weeks to follow launch.
Such has been the success of the new coffee & deli bar, located on the ground floor of My Pizza & Prosecco Bar in fashion retailer Next, Manchester; the business has acquired further floor space within Next.
The expansion sees an additional 25 covers created, with soft leather tub chairs in Gino’s favourite Riva blue, providing a relaxing environment to enjoy a bite to eat or Neapolitan coffee.
Central to the success, Gino believes, is the strength of the real Italian food offer, which features a wide selection of hot classic dishes including the best Neapolitan Pizza, pasta, Italian artisan sandwiches – Piadina and Spianata, and pastries and cakes. All are made in-house by Gino’s expert team of bakers and chefs.
Speaking on the expansion Gino said: “Italian fast-casual dining is a popular concept in Italy and has been well received in London. I had no doubt it would prove popular in Manchester.
“People’s lifestyles have changed; they’re looking for great, quality, hot food that can be enjoyed on the move or in an easy, relaxed environment. My Coffee & Deli Bar delivers exactly that, morning, noon and night.”
Gino added: “Brits are well recognised for their great manners and readiness to queue but who really wants to if you don’t have to. It is early days for Gino2Go but the initial response has been great and we’re looking forward to rolling it out across our wider restaurants.
“If you want to be successful in this industry you’ve got to be agile, you’ve got to listen to what people want and embrace new advancements in technology, it’s not just about delivering great food.”
