Wembley property developer Quintain’s new retail hotspot was boosted further on Monday, as Bread Ahead agreed to open a new restaurant, shop and baking school on Olympic Way.

The artisan bakery group, which was founded in 2013 and has three London sites, will expand after signing for a 11,000 square feet site near Wembley stadium.

Its restaurant there will have capacity for 220 diners, and some 15,000 students can annually use the school.

It is the latest retail and leisure tenant at Wembley Park, which is now home to street food specialist Boxpark and the London Designer Outlet.

Quintain’s retail director Matt Slade said: “The bakery will be an anchor retailer for the area’s residents, whilst its world-famous products will be a draw for our national and international visitors.”

Quintain owns 85 acres in the area, where it has planning consent for 7000 homes, with thousands targeted at renters not yet on the housing ladder. Quintain’s rental brand is Tipi.

Property agents Cushman & Wakefield and Nash Bond advised on the Bread Ahead deal.
