Gran Café


  • ClientSan Carlo Group
  • LocationSelfridges, Manchester

We have worked with the San Carlo Group since our Managing Director, Jeff Barton, met their Chairman, Carlo Distefano in 2008. We have undertaken a range of refurbishment and fit-out projects across all of their brands including:

San Carlo
Signor Sassi
Gran Café
San Carlo Florentina
Flying Pizza

We undertook the full fit-out of Gran Café within Selfridges, Manchester, which was on the lower ground floor adjacent to the perfumery department, which remained fully open throughout the fit-out. This, coupled with the City Centre location created challenges in delivering the goods to site, particularly the substantial pieces of marble for the bar. Selfridges has very rigid protocols, including their Sprinkler System. We worked closely with our Client and the team at Selfridges to deliver this project, minimising the disruption to Selfridges and their customers.

The programme to deliver this stunning design by Carroll Designs was extremely tight. We worked 24 hours a day to deliver this project on time.
