National cafe chain coming to Freshney Place as Muffin Break lease ends

A NATIONAL cafe chain has been lined up to open in Grimsby’s Freshney Place following the closure of Muffin Break.
The coffee shop outside the now vacant BHS store closed earlier this week after its lease came to and end after a decade serving customers in the town.
But lined up to open in the place of the Australian franchise is a “national” cafe outlet, Freshney Place bosses have confirmed.
However, they are remaining tight-lipped about who it is, only confirming that it will be open before Christmas.
Large white screening has been erected around where Muffin Break used to be, and signs have been displayed to say that work is underway to “create a new cafe”.
Freshney Place centre director, Amanda Austin, said: “We have enjoyed a great relationship with Muffin Break over the years, and of course will be sad to see it and the team go.
“However, its lease has ended and we do have a national occupier lined up to open a fantastic outlet in the unit before Christmas.
“As we continue to redevelop the centre and look to offer the best retail mix to our customers, we are delighted that we have been able to secure another great operator at Freshney Place.
“We will of course announce the name of this retailer to the wider community as soon as we are able.”
