Leading Fresh Produce Retailer, Food Lover’s Market, has launched its first Food Lover’s Eatery in Gauteng. The trendy new store already has Sandton regulars buzzing with its chic urban store design and trendy food offerings and service.
The contemporary new store is located on Rivonia Road’s chic new retail mall, The MARC and sits alongside a Seattle Coffee Co. With three other successful Food Lover’s Eateries in the Cape Town CBD satisfying the needs of between 10 000 and 15 000 people daily, it was a no-brainer for Food Lover’s Market to bring the concept to the Sandton CBD – to service the people who work in the high-rise buildings of South Africa’s financial capital and its adjoining suburbs.
Planning for the ultra-modern design of the store started two years ago and the result is a 1800 m2 space that is equivalent to food retail experiences that would be loved in New York, London, Paris or any major city in the world.
“You will see as you walk around the store, Food Lover’s Eatery boasts a wide variety of affordable contemporary dishes and convenience meal options – In short, a hot-food emporium with a distinct New York deli feel,” says Brian Coppin, CEO of the Food Lover’s Market Group.
“We are very certain that it will become the ‘go to’ choice for lunch. The exceptional quality and variety is unrivalled and I have no doubt that once you have seen what we have in store, it will become a regular lunch destination for local businesses.”
With a strong focus on convenience in both the store design and service, the new eatery is dedicated to offering the fastest lunch service in the vicinity, ensuring that shoppers don’t lose any valuable time during their lunch breaks.
The store also boasts incredible attention to detail, which highlights the meticulous planning that went into it. Even better than the store design, fixtures and fittings is the service and food.
The Food Lover’s Eatery offering includes a fresh fruit and juice bar called the Fresh Society, while the Health and Happiness wall is perfect for satisfying cravings with a wide variety of healthy treats. The Daily Deli provides essentials for both the office and home and includes staple items such as milk, butter, cheese and cold meats. The food truck in the Food Junction also offers delicious options such as burgers, chicken and schwarmas. Paninis, focaccias, pizza slices and sushi is available at the central Food Island, while customers with a sweet tooth will love the bakery, which features a delicious doughnut wall. Of course, no Food Lover’s Eatery is complete without premium coffee and for this shoppers can stop by the Seattle Coffee Lounge to grab great coffee made to order.
Concludes Coppin, “With world-class chefs and a highly trained team, Food Lover’s Eatery will offer the fastest lunch service in Sandton, at an exceptionally good price in a stunning setting”.
