Brasilian barbecue restaurant chain Cabana has chosen Leeds for a major £1.5 million investment, announcing plans to open in Trinity Leeds in November, creating more than 60 new jobs in the city.
“The past three years have seen Cabana really take off and we knew the time was right to expand our Brasilian Barbecue offering beyond London.
“Visiting Leeds, it was clear to us that the city, with its vibrant business community, huge student population and amazing shopping, had to be our first place to open,” said Jamie Barber, co-founder of Cabana.
“Cabana will offer a relaxed dining style, including a fun full-sized cabana hut for large groups, a vibrant menu and an array of distinctively Brasilian cocktails created by experienced mixologists, including the signature caipirinha, made using South American spirit Cachaça and offered in a variety of flavours such as passionfruit and pineapple & mint.
“The modern Brasilian style of Cabana will offer Leeds’ diners an affordable taste of the refreshing Brasilian ‘tudo bem’ , meaning ‘everything’s good’, spirit.”
Cabana has appointed Leeds-based MCG to support the launch its new Leeds restaurant.
MCG will be working with Cabana to launch the restaurant with an integrated campaign of social media activity, events, promotions and media relations.
