Archie’s Has Finally Opened It’s Brand New Trafford Centre Restaurant Today

Burger heaven is pending…

After what feels like an incredibly long wait following their January announcement, Archie’s has finally opened the doors to their Trafford Centre restaurant – and it’s just as fabulous as we’d hoped.

Getting their much-loved beefy patties and indulgent milkshakes ready to serve from today onwards, the brand new site – which will mark Archie’s fifth in Manchester – is officially open for takeaway under tier 3 restrictions.

The restaurant, which was originally set to open in April, follows in the footsteps of Archie’s trademark style with bright pink decor and a number of exciting features which rival their incredibly unique Piccadilly store. The new store also serves their iconic American-themed menu, which is packed full of tasty beef and chicken burgers, as well as waffles, milkshakes and their seriously good crinkle fries.

Speaking of the opening, Imran Shezad, CEO of Archie’s said: “The Trafford Centre restaurant is going to be the flagship store, it will be really cool – very Instagrammable.

“We’ve taken the sites we have done previously and taken it to the next level. We’ve got a room with pink banana swings and a ball pit just for that.”

Archie’s has gained quite the cult following since its opening back in 2010, with the likes of Gemma Collins, Jordyn Woods and even Kel Mitchell (one half of Kenan & Kel) paying them a visit. The popular chain has seen success in both Manchester and Liverpool, and will this week open its first Yorkshire site in Leeds – before expanding further in Manchester at the airport next year.
