Independent fast food chain Friska is opening a new outlet in Birmingham next year.
The unit in Eleven Brindleyplace will launch in February and be the company's seventh site and its first outside of Bristol.
It will cover 1,700 sq ft across the ground and first floors where it will employ six staff and serve food such as soups, burritos and sandwiches.
The company, which was founded in 2009, is the brainchild of Griff Holland and Ed Brown and plans to expand nationwide over the next five years.
Mr Holland said: "We're really excited to be opening our first store outside Bristol and Birmingham was the obvious destination.
"Brindleyplace is a thriving business location, with a vibrant social scene around its central square.
"We're focused on continuing our successful growth in 2016 and are confident that Brindleyplace will be the first of many Friskas in Birmingham."
The new shop will go into competition with firms such as Caffè Nero, Costa and Boots on Brindleyplace for the convenience food market along with several outlets on nearby Broad Street.
Jonathan Lawes, director at Cube Real Estate which asset manages Eleven Brindleyplace, added: "Friska is a thoroughly modern business with exciting plans to take its unique brand of food and beverages across the country and we’re pleased to see it come to Birmingham.
"The building already has a number of high-profile tenants and hundreds of workers coming through the doors every day.
"We're confident that, with the first rate facilities and bustling location, Friska has found the perfect environment to thrive."
Friska has signed a five-year lease. It was represented in the letting by Hartnell Taylor Cook while Bilfinger GVA acted on behalf of the landlord.
