Kate and David Parkes have chosen the Bruntwood-owned building on Wellington Street to open their first retail outlet Jack-Pots, a new start-up family business based on similar concepts as London and Australia.
Opening on Wednesday 6th March, Jack-Pots hopes to attract the health-conscious with its wholesome and hearty menu. Jack-Pots specialises in jacket potatoes which are oven baked on site, while it also offers soups, salads and breakfast products.
Co-owner of Jack-Pots, Kate Parkes, said: “This is our first business venture together as mother and son and we cannot wait to welcome our first guests through the door.
“There is a broad range of offices and retail outlets within West One and we are confident of attracting workers who are looking for a healthy and convenient breakfast or lunch. Our food is nutritious, yet filling and tasty, and served in a time that suits people’s busy schedules.
“Bruntwood has helped us from the outset, offering sound advice on the size of unit, throughout the build process and right up to our plans for opening.”
Kate Parkes brings more than 15 years’ experience in nutrition to bear on the project, with a significant focus on a healthy, regularly changing menu. Favourite fillings include 'chicken and chorizo ragu, red lentil dahl and smoked mackerel.
Toby Sproll, Bruntwood’s Head of Retail, said: "Jack-Pots will offer greater choice to staff and visitors at West One. Kate and David have thought carefully about the chosen menu and the benefits their food can bring in a working environment.
This is the perfect time to launch a healthy food outlet as people are increasingly looking for nutritional food without compromising on taste or choice. We are confident Jack-Pots will bring further success to West One for many years to come."
Jack-Pots will take a unit in West One of 1,350 sq ft and will have internal seating
