Greggs has been lined up to share a former Giraffe unit with Wingstop in Kent’s Bluewater shopping centre.

In November last year, Wingstop secured the site for its third UK opening, and it has been announced today that the remaining 550 sq ft of the unit will be occupied by a Greggs back of house production kitchen.

Set to open in spring, the 2,470 sq ft Wingstop space, its first restaurant outside London, will include an 1,130 sq ft Xbox gaming mezzanine, a result of the brand’s partnership with Microsoft.

Speaking to MCA last year Saul Lewin, Wingstop director, said it was “on track to open six to eight restaurants in the UK next year.”

The two signings, agreed through Shelly Sandzer, maintain the occupancy rate of 100% for foodservice units within the centre’s Winter Garden.

“The team at Shelley Sandzer has delivered a creative solution for this prominent unit, bringing together a crowd-pleasing and ever-popular brand with a unique and exciting concept,” said Rob Hardie, portfolio director at landlord Landsec. “Wingstop, with the Xbox collaboration, and Greggs, a brand regularly requested by Bluewater’s guests, have further enhanced the Winter Garden’s dining offer.”
