The St Enoch Centre announced the new Nando’s as part of the £40 multi-million pound redevelopment currently underway to create a new leisure offering which will be anchored by a nine- screen VUE cinema as well as nine restaurants and enhanced retail space.
Since opening in 2009, Nando’s has proved a popular spot in St. Enoch and the new 3,890 sq ft restaurant will occupy a prime location within the new restaurant quarter on the first floor, directly adjacent to the entrance to the Vue.
The current unit on St. Enoch Square will continue to offer both dining and takeaway services for the Afro-Portuguese style peri-peri chicken.
Peter Atkinson, senior acquisitions manager at Nando’s, said: “Our restaurant in St. Enoch Centre has been very successful so it was an easy decision to become part of the new leisure offering within the centre which will allow us to meet the high levels of demand for Nando’s within Glasgow city centre.”
Graeme Jones at Sovereign Centros, said: “Nando’s is a key addition to the enhanced leisure and F&B offering being created at St. Enoch Centre which will attract an additional 2 million people to the centre every year.
“The announcement of a second Nando’s within the centre not only underlines the ever growing popularity of the restaurant brand, but also the strong appeal of St. Enoch Centre’s new development scheme which will create a new leisure destination in Glasgow.”
Nando’s and the further 8 units in the new restaurant quarter will complement St. Enoch Centre’s existing food court – The Atrium – which attracts over 3 million visitors every year and is home to a range of dining options including Di Maggio’s, KFC, Greggs, Subway, and Wongs.
