HoH Food Hall, Hull by CADA Design.

Urban Development

As part of our expansion into urban development, we have partnered with CADA Design, global retail and hospitality design specialists whose work on city centre food halls includes Fenwick in Newcastle, HoH Food Hall in Hull (pictured), Jarrolds in Norwich and Fortnum & Mason in London.

Our collaboration with CADA Design seeks to show owners, stakeholders and landlords how to develop new retail and hospitality operations to attract new customers and make the most of the opportunities that evolving customer needs and expectations present.

With empty units in our previously busy town centres becoming ever more frequent, we are aiming to re-populate high streets with fabulous food halls and restaurants which embody all the best features of our highly successful farm shops. 

The benefits are the same – high quality artisan food and giftware sourced from the finest independent suppliers both locally, regionally and nationally; anchor concessions such as butchers, fishmongers and florists who will bring their own loyal customer base; outstanding customer service from staff recruited and trained by Appetite Me; food with provenance and low carbon footprint and at the heart of all of this, an irresistible hospitality offer to showcase the retail offer.

Great food retail will be an important factor in high street regeneration and with many empty department stores now earmarked for part-conversion to residential/office space, a good quality food and hospitality offer catering for both daytime and evening economies, will add to a dynamic retail and residential/office mix. 

Appetite Me are recognised industry leaders in rural diversification with over 20 years’ experience. Our collaboration with CADA Design means we are now well placed to apply our expertise in high-end food retail and hospitality to urban settings.
