Landlord Grosvenor has announced a second investment in a tenant, with a loan to healthy salad bar and bowl concept, Atis.

It follows the announcement of its first investment, in JKS Restaurants’ latest concept, Bibi, at 42 North Audley Street in Mayfair, earlier this month.

In 2020, Grosvenor, which works with over 500 retailers and food and beverage operators in Mayfair and Belgravia, said it would selectively invest in tenants with new business ideas, and diversification strategies.

Atis, which was launched by husband-and-wife duo Eleanor Warder and Phil Horner, will open its second site in Eccleston Yards, Belgravia. The first store opened in Shoreditch, in 2019.

James Raynor, CEO, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “Atis is an exciting newcomer to the grab and go food market who has innovated to adapt throughout the last year. Supporting businesses with significant potential, a clear growth strategy and values is exactly why we established our Tenant Investment Fund. We look forward to continuing this partnership as they grow.”

Atis’ Warder added: “We are so excited to be opening in Belgravia and feel very grateful for the support we have received from Grosvenor. We love the area and feel that it is a great home for the second site of Atis.”

Eccleston Yard, close to Victoria station, houses several well-known businesses, including Hotpod Yoga, Re:Mind, Barry’s Bootcamp and Masterpeace, which recently won investment for growth through BBC programme Dragon’s Den.
