Italian-themed casual dining chain Prezzo has opened a new restaurant in Moseley village, Birmingham, in a deal completed by leading real estate company Cushman & Wakefield.
It is the chain’s second outlet in Birmingham’s suburbs, following the opening of a restaurant in Harborne.
Prezzo, founded in 2000, has more than 220 restaurants in the UK, including 13 in London.
The company commonly converts older buildings into restaurants, and its new Moseley branch is a former Kwik Fit tyre depot on Alcester Road, the village’s main thoroughfare.
The company has taken the 4,000 sq ft building on a 25-year lease from landlord Birmingham Properties Group.
Ed Purcell, of Cushman & Wakefield’s Birmingham-based retail team, said some of Birmingham’ suburbs were becoming an increasingly popular location for leisure chains and restaurant groups.
He said: “This deal shows the continuing improvement of Birmingham’s suburbs and their growing attraction for chains who in the past may have shied away from them.”
