Asian food and grocery delivery platform HungryPanda has leased a prime retail space near Birmingham’s Chinese Quarter from London & Scottish Property Investment Management.

HungryPanda, headquartered in London, operates in over 60 cities across 10 countries, serving specialised Asian products and food to consumers.

This new Birmingham location forms part of major expansion plans for the business, which will see it launch further flagship stores in the UK and other cities globally throughout 2021.

The business has signed a five-year lease on the unit at Norfolk House, the former home of men’s clothing store High & Mighty.

Located in the Chinese Quarter of Birmingham, just off the city’s main Smallbrook Queensway road, it occupies a prominent corner position and forms part of the wider 85,000 sq ft office building.

Other well-known shops and restaurants nearby include Subway, The Sunflower Lounge, barbers Turkish Golden Scissors and Simply Local.

Panwen Chen, global head of strategy at HungryPanda, said:  “Building on our established reputation in the UK, HungryPanda is excited to embark on this new strategy, launching and growing our shop and restaurant concept.

“Boasting a large overseas Chinese population, a well-established Chinese Quarter and a vibrant retail and leisure economy on its doorstep, Norfolk House is a prime location and the perfect fit for us. We look forward to bringing our new concept to customers in the city later this year.”
