Vegan chain Purezza to open first Manchester restaurant

Vegan pizza group Purezza is to open its first restaurant in Manchester this May.

The company, which was founded in Brighton in 2015, has secured the former Dough Pizza Kitchen site at 75-77 High Street in the Northern Quarter.

It will be the first site in the north of England for Purezza, which also has sites in Bristol, London, and Hove.

Tim Barclay, co-founder and co-owner of Purezza said: "Manchester has been on our agenda for years now. We've had more requests to open in Manchester than any other city in the UK, and it's truly a pleasure to honour those requests and to finally make it happen. We're really excited about this, and we can't wait to welcome you through our doors."

Last year Purezza secured a £2.4m investment from London's MVK group towards its expansion.

The group has developed its own range of vegan cheese for its restaurants, and will open a factors in Brighton and Hove to provide its cheese and pizzas to retail later this year.
