December 2013

The Oakgate Group has confirmed that world food restaurant chain Giraffe is the latest tenant to join the flagship Vangarde Retail Park in York.

The new restaurant will be the first to open in York and will join a number of new lettings that have now been agreed, bringing some well-known, family brands to Monks Cross, includingCosta Coffee, Prezzo and Frankie & Benny’s. Costa has agreed a deal on a 1,600 sq. ft. unit and Frankie & Benny’s will move into a 4,000 sq. ft. space in the kiosk and restaurant space.

Richard France, managing director of The Oakgate Group, commented: “I’m confident that with the addition of Giraffe to our restaurant offering means we have one of the best retail line-ups in the UK. We have been working on creating an exciting restaurant space for York, and we will be announcing two more additions hopefully before Christmas.

“We have had tremendous interest in the final 1,000 sq ft unit, and I’m looking forward to announcing the final tenant on the site in the near future.”
