Matthew Barratt of CBRE Global Investors, said, “We look forward to welcoming to Angel Central two of the best street food operators in the business. They will add further diversity and quality to Angel Central’s industry leading offer and are indicative of the sense of vibrancy we are seeking to create in the centre.

'I am confident both operators will delight and entice customers, and bring fast, delicious food to the heart of Islington. We also anticipate announcing further brands in the coming weeks.”

Gemma Callander of Feed Me Primal, added, “Angel Central is a fantastic retail and dining destination that benefits from the vibrancy, dynamism and distinctiveness of Islington. Its prime location on Upper Street, in one of the capital’s most stylish areas, makes it the perfect place for us to share our healthy, delicious and pioneering paleo street-food concept.”

The announcement follows the appointments of Queensberry Real Estate (QRE) as development manager on Angel Central in July, and BNP Paribas Real Estate and CBRE as joint leasing agents on Angel Central in February. Haskoll, the multi-award winning architects and designers that were also appointed earlier this year, will work alongside QRE.
