The news come weeks before the Bistrot Pierre group prepares to open its 16th site in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare on September 9 and shortly after it launched a bistrot in the heart of Birmingham in July.
Situated in Mulberry Walk, a £20 million leisure and retail development, Bistrot Pierre is replicating the Newport site, which remains one of the group’s most successful bistrots since opening in November 2015.
Rob Beacham, co-owner of Bistrot Pierre said that the group was incredibly busy with new openings across the UK and confirming the newest estate in Mere Green highlighted the group’s rapid expansion in the last eight months.
“The opportunity to open another bistrot in Mulberry Walk was an opportunity too good to miss,” said Rob.
“The bistrot will be a welcome addition to our growing portfolio across the UK as Mere Green benefits from major regeneration and is in a sought-after location; I’m confident it will be a popular choice for locals when it opens in early 2017
“Next month we’ll be opening one of our largest bistrots in Weston-super-Mare, where major regeneration is boosting the food and drink scene and the tourism trade is thriving.”
Well-known food outlets such as Prezzo and Café Nero have already signed up to be part of Mulberry Walk alongside national retailers Boots and Marks and Spencer.
Now with a further three openings in the pipeline for Altrincham (November 2016), Mere Green,Sutton Coldfield (February 2017) and Swansea (Spring 2017), the group is growing rapidly following its £9.8 million investment last year.
Mulberry Walk contains 53,857 sq ft of retail and restaurant units to the centre of the Four Oaks shopping area.
The group, founded in Nottingham in 1994, provides customers with great value authentic French food and drink anytime of the day.
The privately-owned restaurant group currently has 15 bistrots across the UK in Bath, Birmingham, Cardiff, Derby, Harrogate, Ilkley, Leicester, Leamington Spa, Newport, Nottingham, Sheffield, Stockton Heath, Stratford, Plymouth and Torquay.
