A new deli has arrived in Newland Avenue being "Taste of the America". The deli opened its doors on Friday 20th December after letting the unit through ourselves.
The business is staffed exclusively by people who were on job seekers allowance and supplies a range of food similar to that on the hit television Man vs Food, including pulled pork sandwiches, slow cooked brisket and Cajun chicken. All the food is freshly made on the premises by qualified butcher/chef and business founder, Richie May.
Mr Richie May said "I really wanted to do something different, something that Hull has never had before, and so came up with the idea of an American deli. I believe it is the first in the city. Everything is made from fresh ingredients on the premises and that is something I am very particular about. If you’re serving food, you really need to think about quality.”
NT3 had been searching for quite some time to find the right property for Mr May and we are delighted to have found the ideal property for him.
Mr May said “I was really pleased NT3 found a unit on Newland Avenue which is perfect for our type of business, plenty of lively passing trade and lots of young people. I couldn’t have asked for better. Finding the right location is key to the success of the venture but once we did it we were away – we were ready to open inside three weeks.”
Jacqui Trott of NT3 said Newland Avenue comprised of an attractive mix of high-quality local businesses that Richie’s American Deli would add to. It’s interesting to note that whereas the national press is full of stories about the difficulty the high street is experiencing, what with more and more premises becoming vacant, units on Newland Avenue are always well received. The street is a hive of activity day and night due to the quality of businesses that occupy it and I know Richie’s American Deli will be a great addition to the area. We would like to wish Richie and all his staff the best of luck with their new venture.”
