Global fast-food chain, Wok to Walk, has launched a new restaurant in Manchester with support from a seven-funding package from HSBC UK.
The popular Asian restaurant group opened its new 950 sq. ft. Barton Arcade Deansgate restaurant to the public this week. The eatery gives diners the opportunity to choose from a three-step menu, with the fresh, affordable meal stir-fried in front of them in minutes and served in its instantly recognisable orange takeaway boxes. Customers are given the choice of sitting in its 44 seat restaurant or buying a meal to takeaway.
The new restaurant will create up to 15 new jobs and an anticipated £800,000 of sales in the next 12 months.
Ismail Adam, Co-Director of the Leeds and Manchester Wok to Walks, said: “This is the North West’s second Wok to Walk, and it is a privilege to bring it to the heart of Manchester. The reason why the restaurant is so popular right around the world is simple, we give our customers tasty, healthy and affordable food. The franchise offers the ability to create our own stamp on the business and we see great potential for further expansion across the North West with the support of HSBC UK.”
Andrew Holgate, Relationship Manager for Greater Manchester, HSBC UK, added: “With the help of our funding package, we’re proud help bring Wok to Walk to Manchester. The brand has increasingly become synonymous with delicious and unpretentious food, for both a working lunch and a weekend treat for the family. Matched with the experience of Ismail and his team, we believe that the new restaurant will be a roaring success.”
