Revere, the premium pub arm of Marston’s, is to roll out its Lost & Found concept – with two new sites due to come online in the next few months, MCA has learnt.
Colin Sadler, managing director of Revere, also told MCA the company is expanding a trading format based on the Fire Station in Waterloo, under the brand of Foundry.
The Foundry 39 will open in the site of a former Chimichanga in Edinburgh’s Queensferry Street in August. The concept is based around the sourdough pizza and gourmet burger offer, matched with craft beers, that has proved a success at The Fire Station.
Sadler told MCA: “It’s a very simple model and one that we think can work in a lot of locations. It’s about great tasting burgers and pizzas but at an affordable price point, underpinned by a great premium beer offer.”
Sadler said the original Lost & Found in Birmingham had struck a chord with customers and had been a particular hit with women and was another model that showed rollout potential.
The second iteration of the model will open in Greek Street, Leeds, also in August. The third site will be the Old Town Hall site in Knutsford, which will come online in September.
Sadler said: “We have an eclectic selections of great premium pubs and restaurants and within those we have trading formats that can clearly be replicated. We’re very excited to see the potential for both The Foundry and Lost & Found in other parts of the country.”
Sadler said he was in discussions on further sites and said 2016 could be a transformative year for Revere.
