London chain launches second Manchester coffee shop
Artisan coffee chain Black Sheep Coffee has set up shop at 60 Spring Gardens.
The company secured 1,500 sq ft on the ground floor in a deal with the Grade-II listed building’s owner, property firm APAM.
The expansion follows the launch of Black Sheep Coffee’s first site outside London, at Piccadilly Place, in November last year.
Gabriel Shohet, of Black Sheep Coffee, said he and his team are “psyched” about the Spring Gardens launch.
APAM acquired the scheme from insurance giant Aviva in 2016.
APAM senior asset manager Peter Owen said: “60 Spring Gardens is an attractive period property in the heart of Manchester. Surrounded by busy offices, restaurants and bars, we’re confident that Black Sheep Coffee will be a great success and an exciting addition to the building.
“Manchester is thriving and energetic and the city has seen an increasing number of occupiers from the capital looking to take advantage of its lower costs and young, skilled workforce.”
