Papa John’s and Spar join The Old Printworks

February 7, 2023

Papa John’s and Spar Occupy Commercial Space At The Old Printworks, Frome.

International pizza chain Papa John’s and SPAR convenience store are the latest businesses to take up commercial space at The Old Printworks, in Frome.

The Old Printworks has created a vibrant new community in Frome and comprises one hundred and fifty-nine 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes built over three phases, creating a vibrant new community in Frome.

Papa John’s is now open and will be followed by Spar which is anticipated to open in February 2023.

Taking the largest unit on site, the SPAR convenience store will offer quality, value for money products. Situated within the new neighbourhood, residents and locals can access a range of goods on their doorstep.

The SPAR business started with one Dutch store in 1932 and now comprises more than 13,600 stores in over 48 countries on four continents.

The second unit confirmed is to be let by the American pizza company Papa John’s. With over 500 restaurants across the UK, the company had humble beginnings starting with the first pizza that was made in a broom closet in Jeffersonville, Indiana, USA, to now more than 5,000 locations in 44 countries and territories around the world.

The Directors of Late Stop (trading as SPAR) said, “We are delighted to become a part of this exciting development and look forward to providing local residents with a quality and reliable top up shopping facility that will include a free to use ATM, fresh and frozen groceries, Paypoint, lottery, Costa coffee and an in-store bakery.”

A representative from Papa John’s commented, “With well over 500 stores across the UK we are pleased to continue the expansion of Papa John’s at The Old Printworks, enabling the new community to access fresh pizza and share the experience with friends and family.”

Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director of Acorn Property Group’s Bristol region, commented, “The Old Printworks has sold exceptionally well. With the first phase selling out in record time and all residents moved in, it is great to see the new community forming.

“Our ethos centres around creating communities where people can live, work and play. The addition of these stores means residents can ‘live locally’ and are able to meet their everyday needs within a short walk of their home.”

Huw Thomas of Huw Thomas Commercial, who acted as agent for the Acorn Property Group comments “We are very pleased to have secured two well-known international brands to join The Old Printworks. This site is centrally located within Frome providing easy access for the local community.”

There is now only one retail unit remaining at The Old Printworks, which is set between Papa John’s and the SPAR and provides a floor area of approximately 1,191 sq.ft.  The final unit is available on a new lease at a rental cost of £18,000 per annum, or consideration will be given to a long leasehold sale. The unit is suitable for a variety of uses including retail, office and medical. For further information please contact Huw Thomas Commercial on 01249 704345.

There are limited homes remaining in Phase 2 at The Old Printworks with only a selection of 2-bedroom apartments from £270,000 and 4-bedroom houses from £490,000. For further information on the remaining homes contact the sales team on 01373 888 303 or visit our website.
