Archie’s is opening a huge burger bar in the Trafford Centre


Popular fast food chain Archie's had a very strong year in 2019, announcing several new restaurant openings in Manchester, including the Arndale, Manchester Airport and Piccadilly approach.

And they have certainly started 2020 strong with the announcement that they are to open another 250-seat site in the Trafford Centre.

The restaurant group, which specialises in burgers and shakes, will open their new branch in the former La Tasca unit in the Orient food quarter of the popular shopping mall.


The new flagship store will be "taken to the next level", according to Archie's boss Imran Shezad.

He said: "The Trafford Centre restaurant is going to be the flagship store, it will be really cool - very Instagrammable.  We've got a room with pink banana swings and a ball pit just for that."

The new location will include a pink room with a ball pit and will also have swings which will provide "playful posing opportunities."


The brand, which is prone to regular celebrity visits, started out 10 years ago on Oxford Road and has gone from strength to strength over the years.

The constant innovation of their menu and brand has kept Archie's relevant and their massive expansion in the past few years is testament to the group's extremely hard work.

The new Trafford Centre site is set to open in April following the launch of the Piccadilly approach site in the second week of February.
