The Ivy collection is set to launch the largest restaurant opening of 2018 at its new Spinningfields site in Manchester.
Sean Burbidge will oversee back of house as executive chef, while Kate Cooper will serve as general manager.
Baton Berisha, director of operations for the Ivy Collection, says: "We are incredibly excited to bring the Ivy Collection to Manchester this winter. Situated within the heart of Spinningfields, Manchester's luxury dining and shopping quarter, we can't wait to showcase our different floors, dining concepts and offerings. They'll be something for everyone and we hope to bring something new to the city."
The brand is still operated by the Ivy owner Richard Caring, but is managed through Troia, a separate company to the firm which oversees the Covent Garden institution.
In its last strategic report for the year ending July 2017, Troia had a turnover of £44m, double that of 2016's £22m, and adjusted earnings of £4.7m. However, due to the scale of its expansion, the firm ran an operating loss of £3.5m, more than double the previous year's £1.3m loss.
