Polish restaurant chain North Fish targets UK market

Related tags: Seafood

Polish restaurant operator North Fish is eyeing its first UK sites in a bid to fill what is sees as a gap in the market for quality fish dishes to-go.

The quick service chain, which has launched 40 sites across Poland since 2002, has appointed Savills to search for its first UK locations.

It is initially targeting high footfall sites of 600 sq ft to 1,500 sq ft in major shopping centres, ahead of expansion in to the high street and transport hubs.

North Fish specialises in ‘healthy’ seafood dishes such as fish burgers, wraps, sandwiches and soups, and snacks including Pollock sticks and French fries.

“North Fish has seen a clear gap in the UK ‘grab and go’ market for high quality fish dishes,” says David Bell, head of UK leisure at Savills.

“The brand has undergone impressive growth in Poland and we look forward to supporting its UK expansion, initially with sites in major shopping centres followed by a wider roll out.”

A growing number of restaurant brands including Barburrito, Spuntino and BrewDog are targeting expansion in to transport hubs​ ​as a way to grow while avoiding high rents and rates on the high street.
