There is still a lot of supply of food to go in London, but demand is concentrated in more choice locations, according to Rob Meadows of Davis Coffer Lyons.

“Where there is supply, it’s often supply of the wrong kind of thing, you haven’t got the right footfall, you haven’t got that prime spot,” Meadows told MCA’s Food to Go conference.

“What we’re finding, is if it’s someone else’s failed site, it doesn’t mean that’s an opportunity for someone else, it means the opportunity doesn’t work anymore

“Sometimes it can depend on the landlord approach, and how programmatic they will be in taking into account the new normal when making a deal.

“Another thing we’re seeing is where food to go operators are competing with retail for space - that’s an opportunity for sure.”

Meadows said the return of footfall to the capital continues to be a mixed story.

“In some locations the footfall is mixed with other elements – there might be offices, it could be backed up by retail, or residential.”

In the Fleet Street and Chancery Lane areas for example, which has a high concentration of law offices, there was not been the high footfall return as many have continued to work from home more than they have historically.

Meanwhile in Fitzrovia, smaller more creative agencies have more flexible working arrangements and are more likely to work from home more often.
