Legal & General Property (LGP), on behalf of its UK Property Unit Trust, has secured a pre-let to The Restaurant Group to open a Frankie & Benny’s restaurant at St Stephen’s Place Leisure Park in Trowbridge town centre.
Frankie & Benny’s will take 4,020 sq ft on a 25 year lease. The American-Italian style chain has a 1950s inspired New York theme and counts chargrilled burgers, steaks, pizza, and pasta amongst its most popular dishes, as well as house specialities such as chicken parmigiana, BBQ ribs and seafood dishes.
Joining a strong line-up of Nando’s, Prezzo, ODEON and Premier Inn, Frankie & Benny’s is the latest pre-let to have been announced at St Stephens Place Leisure Park, which is set to be a first-class leisure destination. The news comes the same week that ODEON opens its doors to the public, coinciding with Autumn half term and the Trowbridge Arts Festival.
Nando’s, Prezzo and Premier Inn are all due to open over the course of November, while Frankie & Benny’s will launch in February 2014.
Tim Russell, senior asset manager at Legal & General Property, says: “With a strong focus on the quality and range of operators that we add to the line-up at St Stephen’s Place Leisure Park, we are pleased to welcome one of The Restaurant Group’s principal brands, which we feel complements Nando’s and Prezzo in offering a highly popular, family-focused dining option. Another exciting new entrant to the town, Frankie & Benny’s should form a real draw and allows the people of Trowbridge to look to their own town centre to satisfy their leisure needs, as well as attracting visitors from the wider local catchment area into the town. Having not had a cinema for 30 years we’re delighted to be opening the ODEON cinema this week which is a further milestone in the transformation of Trowbridge town centre.”
