Edinburgh city centre expansion for Five Guys restaurants

American restaurant chain to open a second Edinburgh outlet on Frederick Street 

American restaurant chain Five Guys is set to open its first Edinburgh city centre store at 12 Frederick Street after signing a 20-year lease with Savills on behalf of a private landlord.  
The group, which already has a ‘fast-casual’ restaurant at Fort Kinnaird, has agreed to let the 6,758sq ft property, which spans a basement, ground and two upper floors, for £200k a year.
Gordon Nicolson, associate director in the retail team at Savills Scotland, said: “Edinburgh continues to attract national food and drink operators who want a slice of the city’s successful tourist industry and leisure scene and this deal secures a prime location for the first Five Guys restaurant in the city centre.”

Callum Mortimer, director in the retail team at CBRE which advised Five Guys, added: “Five Guys’ endlessly customisable burgers and dedication to freshness and quality have seen the brand move from strength to strength in the UK.
“Having also concluded deals with Five Guys in Aberdeen and Dundee city centre recently we were delighted to help secure such a prominent Edinburgh city centre location. It had been a long standing requirement, and this new acquisition further enhances the brands’ representation across the country.”
