This is the first establishment in Catalonia and the first franchisee in Spain to incorporate the new Pans image. Pans & Company, flagship brand of the Eat Out restaurant group, has announced the opening of a new restaurant in Barcelona, located in the Màgic Mall at Badalona. The new restaurant will be operated and franchised by businesswoman Mireia Cabeza.
The new Pans Màgic Badalona is also the first establishment in Catalonia and the first franchisee in Spain to incorporate Pans’ new image. Launched by the company a few months ago, the new image seeks to make the experience of visiting the restaurant warmer, more comfortable and to give it a welcoming atmosphere.
Thus, the new 177-square metre restaurant has a separate area called Pans Café, where, at any time of day, clients can enjoy the best coffee and hand-made pastries, prepared daily on the premises. Moreover, as a new feature, along with the traditional sandwiches that make up the brand’s main menu, the new Pans & Company will offer pizza slices that can be consumed on or off the premises.
In the words of Sergio Rivas, CEO of Eat Out: “Catalunya is one of Pans & Company’s key markets, and the new image of Pans has been very well received among our customers during these first weeks. We are very busy selecting new franchisees and business opportunities so we can meet our ambitious expansion plan for Spain, where we have plans to open 7 restaurants and remodel 10 others between now and the end of the year".
