The 3,100sq.ft new restaurant will be located in the Touchwood leisure arcade near the cinema and other dining offerings such as Ask, Giraffe, Coast-to-Coast, Theobroma, Handmade Burger Company and Wagamama.
Five Guys’ head of property at Neville Mailing said: "We were looking for locations with a strong footfall and catchment within the West Midlands and Touchwood was a great proposition. We have a great space in a prime location in a centre that is first choice destination for consumers from throughout the regions. Touchwood is perfect for our first restaurant in the West Midlands."
Lend Lease’s head of retail leasing Guy Thomas said: “Five Guys is another great international addition to our already strong dining offer, following the opening of new brands such as Chimichaga and Theobroma. We are continually looking to evolve our guest experience, in which catering and leisure plays a major role, and Five Guys highlights the pull of Touchwood as a key location in the region.”
The news comes shortly after Five Guys UK reported a £3.89m loss due to the cost of launching in this country.
