Café Opportunity

A unique opportunity to take over an established cafe space in the heart of the Northern Quarter and be a part of Manchester Craft and Design Centre’s creative community.

We are looking for an innovative catering business or social enterprise that can offer a delicious food/drink offer that stands out from the crowd. If you’re looking for space to build your brand, our iconic Victorian market building could be just the spot! Our outdoor covered canopy also provides extra covers and/or space for a coffee cart.

We welcome interest from caterers with a track record of business and are open to proposals based on a full café offer or shorter-term trial period. Experience in developing a brand, marketing your business and building a strong social media following will be vital factors in the café’s success.
