Popular Manchester-based dessert shop, Lazy Sundae, has chosen Manchester Arndale for its second location in the city, taking a 1,305 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease.
The home-grown ice cream parlour opened its first outlet in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and has since gone from strength to strength.
Showcasing an internationally inspired menu of premium bubble tea, souffle pancakes and artisan ice creams, guests are able to taste the flavours of the tropics, from Bali and Thailand to Malaysia and Taiwan.
Already a firm favourite in the Northern Quarter, Lazy Sundae will bring its unique concept to Manchester Arndale, further adding to the centre’s diverse food and drinks offer. It will join brands such as Creams, Slim Chickens, Kokoro, Jamaica Blue, Tim Hortons and Pizza Luxe, as well as other emerging local operators like Bubble CiTea.
A spokesperson for Lazy Sundae shared, “We are very excited to be joining Manchester Arndale. The site will form the flagship store for Lazy Sundae as part of our nationwide expansion plans. Customers will be transported to far corners of the world through our travel inspired offerings.”
Scott Linard, Portfolio Director at M&G Real Estate, said, “We’re delighted that an up and coming brand like Lazy Sundae has chosen Manchester Arndale for its newest location. We place great importance in having a truly mixed offer and its fantastic to be able to support local brands as they expand.'
Manchester Arndale is one of the UK’s largest city centre shopping malls, welcoming over 42 million visitors in an average year. It boasts an impressive line-up of more than 200 shops and restaurants, including international, national, and local brands.
