Read on to learn more about Richard Gyros expansion plans and Stadion Shopping Center’s food court refurbishment project.
RICHARD GYROS EXPANDING IN SERBIA
The first Richard Gyros in Serbia opened in 2017 in the city Lazarevac and has later expanded to the county’s capital, Belgrade, on Kraljice Marije Street no. 8.
This year the chain continued to expand in Belgrade by opening its second location in the capital on the famous BW Sava Play promenade, part of the new Belgrade Waterfront project. Stadion shopping center is now its third restaurant in the city and its first mini food corner concept.
By the end of 2020, the restaurant chain aims to open two more locations in the capital which will be located in municipalities Vračar and New Belgrade. After these openings, the company will be investing in completely centralizing its production operations in one location, which will supply all of its current and future restaurants, including its future franchise units.
Richard Gyros will be expanding through two formats, premium fast-casual restaurant format on strategically important locations and mini food corner format that will be developed within shopping centers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GASTRONOMY
Food services are playing an increasingly significant role in shopping centers and Stadion shopping center is following this trend by continuously widening its selection of international cuisine in order to satisfy a variety of tastes and preferences. Its offer currently includes McDonald’s, KFC, Caribian Pizza, Asia Food, Mini Pani bakery, and many others. View the full tenant mix of Stadion shopping center HERE.
This year the mall is investing highly in updating its food court area, being fully refurbished to become the most attractive venue of its kind in Belgrade.
Aleksandar Bojić, Portfolio and Marketing Director at Stadion Shopping Center stated:
We spent a lot of time on the first conceptual design phase of the project, which is now completed. Our goal is to transform the food court into the most attractive area of the shopping center, which is why we focused our resources on this project. The end result will be truly impressive and beyond comparison to any other food court in Serbia.
