A new toasted sandwich stall selling supernoodle, spaghetti hoop and bean and cheese melts is set to be opening at Manchester’s Arndale Market this summer.

From the same team behind Portland Street retro toastie favourite Frankie’s Toasties, the new food stall will offer all the same goodies — in a slightly smaller package.

Sharing the news with followers on Instagram, Frankie’s Toasties wrote: “It’s Official! We’re coming to the Arndale Markets!

“We’re proud to announce we will be opening a “Little” Frankie’s branch in the Manchester Arndale food market!

“We also have some amazing new things coming to our main Frankies site on Portland Street, such as a whole new re-brand, refurb and also some UK’s first concepts! Watch this space.”


Joining the likes of Pancho’s Burritos, Just Natas, Wholesome Junkies, and more, the new grab-and-go ‘Little Frankie’s’ stall is tipped to open inside the Arndale Market this July.

There are spicy ramen noodle toasties, tuna melts, apple and custard toasties and chicken katsu toasties.


And that’s not all. There are sweet toasties too – wodged full of chocolate and sweets, smores, peanut butter, banana and Lotus Biscoff.

There’s really a toastie for every mood – and you can mix and match ingredients however you like to tailor it even more.

Frankie’s Toasties first opened its doors in Manchester in 2018, spurred on by one man’s self-proclaimed mission to open the UK’s first “dedicated lip scalding, mouth stripping, retro toastie shop.”

As its website says, “everyone loves a red hot toastie, that’s so hot it nearly melts your face off.”

Named after Barry Chui’s ‘proper top’ family pet, Frankie the bull terrier, this no-fuss toastie shop is the place to go get your Breville fix – no messing about now.


Find its existing site on Portland Street for now, and keep an eye out for the Arndale Market stall’s opening this July.
