New deli for Edgbaston

From mid-September, Edgbaston businesses, students and residents will be able to enjoy a mouth-watering selection of fresh salads, sandwiches, croissants and coffee from The Deli at Edgbaston.

Located across the road from Simpsons Restaurant and St George’s Church, The Deli at Edgbaston is set to create a new destination on Calthorpe Estates for high quality take away and eat in food.

The owner Simon Dunmore, who also owns the ‘The Grocer in Edgbaston’, spotted an opportunity to serve the growing passing trade around Edgbaston with a new variety of breakfast and lunchtime options.  He said: “As a retailer in the area, I know people are looking to vary their take away meals with more healthy alternatives and I saw a challenge to create something different for a competitive price.

“We will be offering an interesting selection of sandwiches, but our salads will be truly magnificent and provide exotic combinations of fresh, seasonal ingredients that are healthy and delicious.”

The Deli at Edgbaston will be open from 7am to 3pm from Monday to Friday and will have some bench seating for customers at the front of its striking glass premises and further seating upstairs.

A lunch time buffet service will supply local business and there are plans to further develop to provide hot food from November.

Natasha Walkden, Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator for Calthorpe Estates believes The Deli at Edgbaston will be a huge success.

“Through our Calthorpe Business Alliance and working with existing and new customers on the Estate, I know that everyone is keen to have a choice of quality food options for breakfast and lunch.  We have been working hard to encourage people like Simon to create new food destinations and his experience at The Grocer in Edgbaston is a great asset for understanding what people are looking for.”
