STACK, Newcastle’s shopping and leisure destination built out of 60 shipping containers, is due to open this June as more businesses come on board.
Mobile food van Hatch 76 is the latest business to join STACK. Owner Alex Hindson said: “I love the concept of STACK; it’s about getting passionate, local people together in order to develop something creatively cool. What we offer at Hatch 76 is different and our main focus is simply on getting it right.
“We want people to understand what we’re all about and we’re really looking forward to working with other businesses; STACK is all about the community – working together really strengthens the brand and supports rather than going it alone.”
Black Storm Brewery will also be launching their new venture, Beer Box, within STACK this June. Operations director, James Davie-Baguley, said: “We came across STACK in the early stages of planning and thought it seemed like something that matched our style and brand perfectly.
“Ultimately we want to grow to have multiple outlets across the north east and the rest of the country and for us, STACK was the best place to go. We’re a young company that’s had great successes to date and we believe STACK is all about supporting local businesses which is our biggest mantra.”
Beacon Burgers will join the tenants at STACK, a food truck that is well established at North East events but is now looking forward to bringing authentic food back home to the masses of Newcastle.
Neill Winch, chief executive of STACK, said: “The development is shaping up to be fantastic and we’re really happy with the businesses we have involved so far. There are some amazing independents that are part of STACK and it’s great that we can all support each other with this new project.”
STACK will be home to over 40 independent traders, from bars, to delis, restaurants and numerous bespoke retail shops, as well as a changing outdoor area starting with an Enchanted Garden, followed by the return of much-loved Hadrian’s Tipi before launching their brand new project Antartica in the turn of the year; an ice bar and igloos serving cocktails and hot drinks in a sub-zero setting.
