Healthy eating café and restaurant company, Filmore & Union, is to invest £250,000 relocating their Harrogate café to bigger premises, creating 30 new jobs for the area.
The impressive new two-floor restaurant and cocktail bar is undergoing extensive renovation before it opens on Station Parade in March, replacing Filmore & Union’s current café at Station Square.
Since moving to Harrogate in July 2012, the 14 cover healthy eating café has struggled to meet high customer demand which has led to the company’s decision to move. The new restaurant will seat up to 84 people at any one time and will also feature an outside dining area.
100% gluten free
The new site will follow the same business model as their York, Wetherby and Skipton restaurants and will be open for evening dinner serving a 100% gluten free a la carte menu as well as freshly prepared healthy breakfasts and wholesome lunches alongside organic coffee, fresh juicing and smoothies and homemade gluten free cakes, all made with seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers.
A new £10m cinema complex is being built on the corner of Station Parade later this year, which is hoped to drive new business and footfall to the area, after plans were approved to bulldoze the old Beales department store and create a “striking” new structure in its place.
The expansion comes shortly after the healthy eating company, which has 7 cafes and restaurants across Yorkshire, opened up in Skipton in November before relocating their head office and production kitchen to a bigger unit on Sandbeck Park in Wetherby two weeks later. The company are expected to announce more plans to expand across the country later this year.
