Lunson Mitchenall has been instructed by Burger King UK (The Master Franchisee) to support its nationwide expansion.
The occupier representation team will work alongside a group of joint agents to roll out Burger King UK’s acquisition strategy throughout the UK and the growth of their Franchise partners. Lunson Mitchenall cover East Anglia, South East, South West and South Wales as it looks to open at least 30 new outlets a year for the next three years.
The Lunson Mitchenall team has already secured 9 new sites for Burger King UK with recent openings in Brentwood and Cheltenham and more in the pipeline. The focus of the expansion is centered around those high footfall areas where there isn’t a pre-existing Burger King UK presence and includes transport interchanges, Drive Thrus and retail parks, high street locations and shopping centre food courts. The team are looking for sites between 1,600 and 3,000 sq ft.
Matt Maynard, Director, Lunson Mitchenall commented: “It is great to be working alongside such an iconic and much loved global name like Burger King. It has a real and long-standing heritage and we are enjoying supporting the Bridgepoint team as they look to grow the chain and expand further. It is a really interesting time for the fast food market in particular which, against the wider economic back drop, is enjoying strong growth thanks to a shift in perception of fast food and consumers responding to Burger King’s reinvigorated offering.”
