Weekender: Derbion welcomes Mexican restaurant brand

Mexican restaurant brand Tortilla is set to become the latest tenant at Derby’s flagship retail and leisure destination, Derbion.

The UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican brand will open at the shopping centre next month, offering burritos, bowls, quesadillas, tacos, nachos and desserts.

Derbion has invested more than £3.6m in its food offering in the past few years, and recently spent £2m on food court refurbishments.

Other new additions to its dining proposition include Popeyes® and Burger & Sauce.

Adam Tamsett, centre director of Derbion, said: “We’re delighted to announce that Tortilla will be arriving to our Food Terrace!

“Following the £2m refurbishment of the Food Terrace and a recent string of exciting food and drink announcements, including the record-breaking opening of Popeyes®, as well as 200 Degrees and Burger & Sauce recently opening in-centre, the arrival of Tortilla will provide our shoppers with another new and exciting food option to enjoy.

“We’re committed to bringing a range of dining experiences to our visitors and we’re confident that Tortilla will be a big hit!”

Jason Thomas, chief operations officer at Tortilla, added: “We can’t wait to introduce our brand to Derby. We have a fantastic location in the centre which will provide locals and visitors with a convenient and delicious spot for lunch or dinner after a spot of shopping. We look forward to welcoming plenty of happy customers in store and playing our part in this thriving community.”
