Lunya reports an ‘enormous increase’ in walk-in trade at its new site

lunyaCATALAN restaurant and deli Lunya has opened its new bigger site in Liverpool ONE.

Following a £200,000 investment by founders Elaine and Peter Kinsella, it has enabled the independent business to expand its shop front and combine the dining area, bar and deli into one open plan space.

A 20-foot mural joins a 140 sq ft map of Spain in the restaurant, highlighting the locations of Lunya’s key suppliers and the story of the people and the land behind the produce.

In addition, the owners have kept two pieces of artwork in the style of Antoni Gaudi, commissioned for their original site when it opened eight years ago.

“We’re absolutely delighted with our new site at Liverpool ONE, it looks stunning and we have received fabulous feedback from our many regulars who have been in to visit us already,” said Peter Kinsella.

“With the increased prominence and visibility of the site, we have immediately seen an enormous increase in walk-in trade.  We are delighted to have a fully accessible, totally ground floor operation, ensuring that Lunya is open to everyone.”

Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management at Liverpool ONE operator Grosvenor Europe, said: “It is fantastic to see Lunya go from strength to strength.  We are delighted to have been able to facilitate this upsize and realise their full potential as a brand.

“This is a prime site at the heart of Liverpool ONE, in close proximity to a range of hotels and located on a thoroughfare that runs to both of the cities train stations.  We are sure they will continue to thrive here and further build upon their successful dining experience.” @copy NewspaperTimes - All rights reserved
