IT’S A WRAP! HARRIS LAMB SECURES SOLIHULL SITE FOR FUSION FAST FOOD CHAIN

Harris Lamb has continued its run of acquisitions for fusion fast food chain Wrapchic, securing a prime location in Solihull.

Having previously secured units for the chain in Merry Hill, Marylebone Station, Meadowhall in Sheffield and in Milton Keynes, the business’ retail team has now secured a unit on Solihull High Street.

Harris Lamb was retained at the beginning of 2015 by Wrapchic founder Mahesh Raikar and tasked with identifying and acquiring suitable premises in key locations across the UK to aid the business’ expansion.

 Head of Retail David Walton said: “The past two years have seen Wrapchic move from strength to strength, not only rolling out premises across the UK but also launching its first international store in Dubai.

“The Solihull unit at 28 High Street occupies a prominent location adjacent to the Touchwood Centre in the pedestrianised shopping centre close to centre car parks and bus stops.

“The 740sq ft site, previously occupied by Restored, the antiques specialist will benefit from a great deal of footfall and adds another dining option to the town’s existing choices. We’re delighted to have secured such a prime spot for the brand, and we look forward to seeing the finished outlet further to fit-out.

“Wrapchic has now secured units in a number of the top UK shopping centres with the assistance of Harris Lamb, and we look forward to securing further sites for them as we continue our search for other High Street locations,” added david.

The business is currently in discussions around three further UK sites; one in the South, one in the North and a further one in the West Midlands.

Mahesh Raiker, owner of the chain, said: “Wrapchic’s expansion is very exciting and we are delighted with the diverse range of locations that we are establishing a presence in.

“The Solihull site is an excellent location and we have high hopes for its performance.  I’m confident that Harris Lamb’s understanding of the business will lead to more complementary sites in our portfolio.”

The store is expected to open in August.
