me&u open new UK head office in Burton

Burton-based commercial property agents, Rushton Hickman, has just let 3,197 sq ft (297 sq m) of ground floor office space to me&u for their new UK head office location.

Suite A/B, The Maltsters is located on Wetmore Rd, in Burton upon Trent. This former Bass Brewery maltings building was fully refurbished a number of years ago, to provide quality modern office space for rent. East Staffordshire Borough Council occupied a large part of the property for several years prior to moving back to the Burton Town Hall building.

me&u founder, Stevan Premutico is one of Australia’s leading tech entrepreneurs in the food & tech space. In 2007, Stevan conceptualised Dimmi Online Restaurant Reservations, and in 2015 it was acquired by TripAdvisor. Now he is back with me&u, which is set to change the way we order & pay for food and drinks in the hospitality sector.

James Winstanley, me&u country manager (UK), said: “The business benefits to the hospitality industry are an absolute game changer and we are transforming hospitality venues at a critical time for operators, through improved operational efficiencies, maximising customer experience and driving significant incremental revenue. Using me&u offers businesses on demand ordering, ability to accept a range of payments and provides a world class digital ordering platform to their guests.

“We chose The Maltsters site in Burton upon Trent, due to its central location within the UK, which is perfect for our National coverage, as well as the deep rooted links with the hospitality industry through the brewery trade.

“Rushton Hickman provided a comprehensive and fast service, which enabled us to identify the space required and get it open for business in the time frame we required.”

Rushton Hickman commercial property agent Simon Walker said: “We are delighted that me&u have chosen Burton upon Trent as the location for their new UK head office. Competitive levels of asking rents in the area coupled with good transport links are proving the commercial property market continues to remain very active in the locality.

“We have found both the number of enquiries received and viewings of commercial properties from interested parties are on the increase, which is fantastic news for our clients of course.”
