Following the success of Just Falafel’s first UK restaurant in Covent Garden, we are proud to announce that our client has now opened their second and third restaurants in London, in Baker Street and Hammersmith Broadway Shopping Centre.
Both Charing Cross Road and Croydon are well underway, with openings due shortly!
Just Falafel is a superb operation launched in the UAE in 2007, with over 35 restaurants trading globally, and is keeping with the trend of more and more people on the move looking for a healthy alternative to fast food!
Many more locations are now required within high footfall locations, and busy hubs of Central London.
A3 or A5 required, with a minimum 750 sq ft at ground floor preferred.
Please get in touch with Theo Benedyk or Richard Grossman at Lewis Craig with any ideas!
As we begin to peel those winter layers off and t-shirt weather just around the corner, Lewis Craig are delighted that our client Ernesto Moreno of Biothecare Estetika has opened his first premises in a superb location in East Sheen, Richmond approximately a 2 minute walk from Mortlake Station.
Biothecare is a non-invasive beauty clinic and the leading aesthetic centre in Europe with more than 180 centres worldwide. Lewis Craig are pleased to be involved with such a strong beauty brand with more Biothecare stores required!
Address: 50 Sheen Lane, London. SW14 8LP
Ernesto has exciting plans for London and we are now actively seeking to secure additional locations in good secondary parades in West London, South-West London, and the West End, offering space between 800-1,500 sq ft.
Please call Ben Pistol (020 7009 0485) with opportunities, or for further information on our client’s requirement.
Our client Karali Group have this week opened at Kingsway in a superb location, alongside the recently opened Wagamama, opposite Holborn Station close to the junction of High Holborn. Lewis Craig acted for Karali in the negotiating process.
Karali now operate over 60 Burger King restaurants throughout the UK. We are actively seeking more Central London opportunities like this, alongside or very close to Underground and Mainline Stations. This being in addition to our client’s requirement for drive-thru, high-street and food-court opportunities nationwide.
Devon & Devon, the world-renowned specialist bathroom supplier, have recently opened their doors at 77-79 Westbourne Grove, London W2. The premises have a superb double-front and comprise some 2,100 sq ft over ground and basement.
Devon & Devon have existing representation in key cities such as Bucharest, Chengdu, Hamburg, Istanbul, Nice, Paris, Tel Aviv, Warsaw and Vienna, and in Italy in Florence, Milan and Turin.
Lewis Craig have managed the parade on behalf of our client, Sandpiper Securities Limited, for over 20 years.
Lewis Craig recently had the pleasure of a meeting with Ajit Chambers founder of “The Old London Underground Company.” A former banker, Ajit is breathing new life into our disused Tube stations by unlocking the value of historic underground real estate that has largely been forgotten.
The Legacy Project details changes to 26 abandoned or relocated “Ghost Stations” on the London Underground that will allow them to operate as a public and private partnership and bring revenue into London’s economy.
Revamping London’s ghost tube stations
Lewis Craig are delighted to have been introduced to Ajit Chambers and this unique project. Richard Grossman, Managing Partner at Lewis Craig says “we are well positioned to advise on the retail and leisure aspects sharing the same goals as Ajit in helping London boost its economy. With demand for Central London leisure opportunities far outweighing supply, these stations provide innovative space opportunities for galleries, museums, restaurants, clubs, bars and a range of other uses.”
Without doubt, our fastest deal in 2012 was the acquisition of 33-35 London Road, Twickenham on behalf of our Burger King franchisee client, Karali Leisure Ltd. The premises comprise approx. 2,000 sq ft at ground floor, with an impressive 30 ft frontage.
Having first viewed with our client on 26 October, the letting completed on 9 November – a pretty impressive 11 working days from start to finish (including obtaining landlord’s consent)!
A 3-week fit-out then followed, with the premises opening on 1 December.
Ben Pistol comments, “From our experience, it is rare when everything comes together in such a short time frame at this time of the year! We are now actively seeking to secure for Karali more high street opportunities, as well as drive thru and shopping centre representation.”
Lunchtime today saw the exciting launch of our client Just Falafel’s first UK restaurant at 1 Monmouth Street, Seven Dials, Covent Garden, London.
Situated in one of the most prominent sites in Covent Garden, with frontages to Monmouth Street, Neal Street and Shaftesbury Avenue.
The premises comprise a ground floor area of some 350 sq ft, with a similar sized basement area.
Just Falafel have exciting plans for the UK, with this being the first of many openings during 2013. February will see the opening of the next Just Falafel in Hammersmith (Broadway Centre), and Charing Cross Road due to open in March.
We are currently in solicitor’s hands on premises in the West End and Croydon, as well as several other sites under negotiation for franchisees in London, Cambridge, Exeter and Ireland.
As retained advisers to Just Falafel, we are looking to secure more A3 or A5 sites in high footfall locations, ranging from 450-1,000 sq ft.
Please get in touch with Theo Benedyk or Richard Grossman with any interesting ideas by calling us on 020 7009 0480.
