Giraffe to open Birmingham Airport site

Tesco-owned restaurant chain Giraffe is to open a new site at Birmingham Airport later this month - its eighth with TRG Concessions.

TRG has invested over £1m into the 173-cover restaurant designed by Harrison.

The venue will offer Giraffe's usual range of all-day breakfast dishes, sandwiches, burgers and salads, as well as sharing platters and seasonal chef's specials.

Sam Anstey, Giraffe director of franchising and brand marketing said: "We are proud to be partnering up again with The Restaurant Group Concessions and open at Birmingham Airport this month. We will continue our long-standing relationship with TRG who have been the perfect partner for us and invested considerably in delivering our award-winning brand within UK airports."

Nick Ayerst, managing director of TRG Concessions comments: "Giraffe is becoming synonymous with quality airport dining and we hope our hugely successful partnership delivers quality and great value dining for Birmingham Airport passengers."

Giraffe operates more than 60 restaurants around the UK, as well as three restaurants in the United Arab Emirates.

The business, co-founded by Russel and Juliette Joffe and Andrew Jacobs, was acquired by Tesco for £48m in March 2013.

The Joffes resigned from the brand in August last year, with Jacobs taking over as chief executive in September.
