Expanded partnership between McArthurGlen and HMSHost leads to openings in new designer outlets in the UK

HMSHost International, leading provider of food & beverage locations at high traffic locations worldwide, announces the extension of their partnership with McArthurGlen, Europe’s leading owner, developer and manager of designer outlets. This extension of the relationship will see HMSHost open two new restaurants at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford in October 2019.

At McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford, located near London, HMSHost will open Comptoir Libanais, and it brings more than just the taste of Lebanese cuisine. As well as the lovingly replicated decor, it brings a warm Middle-Eastern hospitality and way of life with the restaurant team set to welcome guests just like at home. Besides a store of worlds’ most famous and appreciated coffee brand Starbucks will open their doors at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford.

The new agreement signed by HMSHost International and McArthurGlen builds on the experience of the cooperation of eight locations at the Designer Outlet Roermond in the Netherlands and the recent opening of two locations at Cheshire Oaks, the largest designer outlet in the UK with 8 million visitors each year.

Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International: “We are delighted to announce the further cooperation with McArthurGlen. Outlet shopping locations have shown a tremendous growth. Especially in the UK and we are proud to be part of that success. We share a commitment for innovation as well as to help our guests customers feel good with their food choices. Together with our brand partners, we create places where people want to be, before, during and after their shopping experience.”

Michiel Reuvers, Group Director of Foodservice at McArthurGlen Group, said: “McArthurGlen welcomes over 90 million guests a year and we constantly review our food & beverage offer to reflect evolving consumer habits. By developing a balanced mix of internationally renowned F&B brands combined with iconic domestic operators, we will continue to offer our guests the best shopping experience when they come to visit us.”
