Manchester's new indoor ski slope seeks restaurant chains

Restaurant chains have been invited to show their interest in opening outlets in a planned indoor snow development near Manchester.

The £31m Chill Factore, which is due to open next October in a development four miles from Manchester city centre next to the Trafford Centre, will offer the "longest and widest" real snow indoor ski slope in England.

The developers want to include an Italian/pizza restaurant, a noodle bar, an American-style diner, an ice cream parlour, a sandwich shop/deli, a chicken restaurant, and a bar, all arranged on a Alpine-themed street.

They will complement the coffee shop, creperie and steak restaurant which are already confirmed.

David Sterland, managing director, said: "Chill Factore presents a remarkable restaurant and retail opportunity with its powerful location, catchment area, customer profile and consumer offer.

"The emphasis is as much on the retail and catering element as the snowsports activity so the venue will be as appealing to diners and shoppers as skiers."
