OVERVIEW

THE SPREAD empowers others through food and beverage.

We do this by supporting the strategic and commercial aims of public and private landowners by providing a data driven approach to establishing, developing and optimising their food and drinks offerings at a wide range of developments including new public realm, shopping centres, parks and iconic venues across London.

We operate via permanent units, concessions, events and pop up markets that provide a platform for independent emerging and established food and beverage brands to flourish by following  a low risk, easy to navigate means of setting up and developing their business. 

 

We've been  on the block since 2015 and operated at some iconic locations with a diverse and incredible range of landowners and generated over fifteen million pounds for independent businesses who have traded under the lofty heights of Primrose Hill, nestled between Oxo Tower and National Theatre on the Southbank, in the heart of the East End at London's first weekly vegan market, at the former home of the BBC White City Place, at Barnet's largest green space Victoria Park and  at the  new retail and  leisure development Hawley Wharf Camden.
