Multi opens new food court in Forum Palermo, Italy

The new 1,400m2 food court will host eight new food and beverage concepts all to be opened by the end of May. Five are restaurants (Doppio Malto, Zangaloro, Coppola & Meusa, KFC) and three are kiosks (Cagliostro Bakery, Poke House and La Piadineria).

“Le Putìe di Forum”, is a meeting and exchange place where every visitor can enjoy the flavors of the recipes of the past or discover and taste new trends in quality catering. The new square is modern and welcoming, and was conceived with a design that creates a dialogue between indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing Forum Palermo to open to the green outside thanks to contemporary and flexible architecture.

“The expansion and complete renovation of the food court area is part of an upgrading program that, over the past five years, has led the mall, not only to look absolutely cutting-edge and up-to-date in these 360° times, but also to achieve the best performance in terms of visitors and sales in 2019”, said Luca Maganuco, Managing Director of Multi Italy
