Wing Yip revamps business centre & opens Pan-Asian eatery

Ahead of its 50th anniversary celebrations next year, Wing Yip – the UK’s leading oriental supermarket - has completed the renovation of its Birmingham Business Centre.

The revamp has allowed Wing Yip to further grow its commercial offering and the centre now boasts a total of 22 multi-purpose units, all of which are accessible to local businesses. 12 of those 22 units have now been let as demand for space continues to grow.

The centre has been completed with a landscaped outside seating area to be enjoyed by the local community, and a brand new Pan-Asian restaurant, Min Min. This well-renowned eatery, which was previously based in the City’s thriving China Town, will serve a variety of Oriental dishes including soup noodles, salads, rice dishes and sharing plates.

Managing Director, Brian Yip, said, “We’re delighted to announce that our new and improved Birmingham Business Centre is now fully up and running! This has been an integral part of the Birmingham community for many years and provides a wealth of specialist services to both Chinese and non-Chinese communities alike.

“I’m particularly thrilled to have Min Min’s on our doorstep. I have been eating there for many years, so to be able to dine there again on a more regular basis is a big advantage!”

Established in 1970 when founder Woon Wing Yip opened his first grocery store in Digbeth, Birmingham, Wing Yip has become the UK’s leading Oriental grocer, worth an estimated £100m.

With more than 4,500 pan-Asian products available instore originating from China, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea and Singapore, Wing Yip superstores provide a one-stop shop for pan-Asian cooking.
