Blank Street coffee brand expands to Manchester

Newmark Retail UK & EMEA are opening two new locations for Brooklyn-born coffee brand Blank Street in Manchester – its first shops outside London.

One 940 sqft shop will be in Piccadilly Gardens and the second (710sqft) is located at 62 Cross Street.

Originally from New York, Blank Street has become popular on the UK coffee scene.

Opening its first UK stores in London last summer, the brand seeks to offer specialty-grade coffee at scale in beautiful modern spaces.

Simon Carson, director and head of the leisure, food & beverage team for Newmark Retail UK & EMEA, said: “We have been working alongside Blank Street for a year and a half, and, over that time, we have used a very data-driven approach when choosing each location. Leveraging its deep expertise, our team ensures each location matches the requirements of the business throughout the stringent site selection process.”

Ignacio Llando, managing director at Blank Street, said: “Manchester’s buzzing culture is the perfect match for our brand. We’ve had countless requests on social media asking for us to come to the city, so we’re thrilled to have answered that call with two beautiful new stores.”
