Yorkshire-based frozen yoghurt bar, Yoghies, located at The Core Shopping Centre in Leeds, has revealed plans to expand its business following just one month’s trading.
Yoghies, which signed a deal with The Core Shopping Centre to sell its range of frozen yoghurts and milkshakes from a 500 sq ft retail unit made its debut on The Headrow in Leeds in June.
Due to its unprecedented success, the decision has been made to double the retail space and move into 1,150 sq ft premises in The Core’s food cluster, which is currently undergoing a £2.4 million refurbishment project.
The Core Shopping Centre, which already boasts an impressive list of leisure and retail brands, including Waitrose, New Look, JD Sports, Game, Sports Direct, HMV, BANK, The Gym and the newest food and beverage, Burger King will welcome the newly expanded Yoghies in December 2014.
The multi-million pound investment project, which is currently underway, has been designed to create eight new food outlet spaces to offer a varied food offering in modern surroundings to the city of Leeds.
Nicola Lavelle, property manager at The Core Shopping Centre said:
“We believe the success of Yoghies is down to its position within the city, alongside great food and service.
“We look forward to welcoming Yoghies into larger premises in The Core and supporting its future growth strategy.
“It’s an exciting time for The Core, with new retailers coming on board and existing retailers, including Game resigning leasing contracts.”
A spokesperson from Yoghies said:
“Doubling our retail space opens up some exciting opportunities for Yoghies, including new job opportunities.
“We have ambitious growth plans and we look forward to the move and what the future holds.”
