Steve Novak, the founder of the Cattle Grid brand, has launched the first of his fast casual concept Stampede at Lakeside Shopping Centre and has scheduled the second opening for the concept in March.

Cattle Grid currently has sites in Balham, Leeds and Windsor as well as operating the Earlsfield Pub & Kitchen in London’s Earlsfield.

Stampede offers a similar menu to Cattle Grid, but without steaks and was geared towards food court locations, Novak said.

“It’s going really well, we’re opening the second Stampede in Leeds at the end of March,” he said.

“We’ve started strong in Lakeside and we’re actively looking for more sites to open as soon as possible.”
