A sweet success in York Minster’s shop deal

Marketing / 11 Nov, 16

Our Leeds agency team has let a property on behalf of the Chapter of York after we were appointed to manage the entire property investment portfolio of York Minster.

The letting at 10 Minster Gates brings specialist chocolatier, Cocoa & Sweet, to the city of York for the first time. The company will be occupying the property on a five year lease and have taken retail space comprising 1,067 sq ft.

Cocoa & Sweet is a high quality chocolate and confectionery store inspired by York’s chocolate past, as well as other renowned top quality chocolatiers. The company will be located in a Grade II* listed property providing it with excellent ground floor sales accommodation.

York Minster’s Chapter Steward, Kathryn Blacker, said: “We are delighted to have secured this letting with the help of Sanderson Weatherall as part of our existing property portfolio. It is great for the city to welcome the new business and I am looking forward to them becoming part of the community.”

Last year, we were appointed on a five year contract to manage all of York Minster’s commercial and residential property holdings and provide a comprehensive range of property management services.

Peter Heron, partner in our retail agency team, said: “We are very excited to bring Cocoa & Sweet to York. It is a high quality retailer and the location of the premises will be extremely beneficial to its success with both local residents and tourists.”
