The first establishment in Galicia to incorporate the new company image. The new-look restaurants have received a warm welcome from consumers, with growth above 30% in those premises with the new Pans & Company design.
Pans & Company, flagship restaurant brand of the Eat Out Group, has announced the opening its first restaurant in Lugo. Located in the new Abella shopping centre, the establishment opened its doors to the public of Lugo just three weeks ago. This new establishment, which will be managed as a franchise, is the leading Spanish sandwich-shop chain’s fourth restaurant in the region of Galicia.
The new Pans Albella is also the first establishment in Galicia with Pans’ new image. Launched by the company a few months ago, the new image seeks to provide the restaurant with a warmer, more comfortable customer experience and a welcoming atmosphere. Across the country, consumers have given a warm welcome to the new-look restaurants, with growth above 30% in those premises with the new Pans & Company format.
The new 250-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, along with traditional sandwiches that make up the brand’s main menu, the new Pans & Company will offer pizza slices that can be enjoyed on or off the premises.
The new Abella Mall is in a very strategic location for the company, and over 3 million customers are expected to visit the venue each, year thanks to its leisure and restaurant offering. Moreover, sales forecasts for the new Pans & Company outlets are very positive, especially if we take into account that their opening will coincide with Christmas and the January sales.
In the words of Sergio Rivas, CEO of Eat Out, “we continue to move forward with our ambitious expansion plan in Spain, opening venues as important as this, which is our first establishment in Lugo, and our fourth in Galicia. Looking ahead to 2016, we shall continue to commit to our expansion in the Galician market and nationally, and shall close the year with 12 new restaurants in Spain".
