£350m shopping centre Trinity Leeds will provide consumers with a new way of eating out in its ‘Trinity Kitchen’ concept from next week.
Street food vendors, pop-up market stalls and emerging high street food and drink brands will be featured in the 20,000 square foot indoor food hall.
“Today’s customer wants a truly memorable experience, from the very best retailers and restaurants to exemplary levels of customer service, made easy with the clever use of technology,” said Andrew Turf, Leasing Manager for Trinity Kitchen.
“We are always striving to offer visitors something different every time they visit and we’re delighted to be launching the very latest in eating out concepts at a centre which is setting the benchmark for today’s shopping centres.”
Seven brands, including Chicago Rib Shack, Pho, Tortilla, Notes and the Circle Club Champagne bar, have each been assigned a ‘pod’ space at which they will be encouraged to put the emphasis on interactivity and theatre.
Trinity Leeds, which welcomed 2.7m shoppers in its first month, opens Trinity Kitchen on 17th October. The new concept will allow groups and visitors to interact through the #’Your TK’ Instagram wall and a free iPad service.
Richard Johnson, curator of the project comments: “Street food is one of the most important British food trends in years and the launch of Trinity Kitchen is set to not only change the way we view food in a shopping environment, but also how we eat out in the UK.
“We know people want more choice, better quality and a great experience, so that’s why we’re bringing the best traders to Trinity Leeds, from across the UK, every month.”
The kitchen was designed by interior designers Fusion.
