Five Guys opens in Basingstoke
Five Guys, the latest operator to sign up for new space at Basingstoke’s Festival Place, recently opened its 3,200 sq ft restaurant in its Festival Square dining zone. Festival Place first opened in October 2002 and was acquired by AEW in 2015. It is the highest ranked shopping centre, both in Hampshire and outside a major UK city.
Russell Jewell, head of private equity funds for AEW, said: “The opening of Five Guys at Festival Place is a great endorsement for the transformation that has taken place at the centre under AEW’s leadership. The fact that Five Guys has signed a lease with us means that operators are buying into our vision and believe in Festival Place as a destination.”
