Jamie used to live in Sydney, Australia, and returned to his home in Britain when the pandemic struck. During lockdown, he set up Bondi Bowls as a new venture offering delivery of healthy salad bowls - bursting with flavour.

Now, The 30-year-old chef is realising a long-held ambition by announcing his first permanent location in the city centre.

Designed by the renowned studio No Chintz, the space will provide a laid-back, contemporary environment where customers can enjoy coffee and food or opt for grab-and-go plant-based options, with the choice to add non-vegan extras.

“We always hear people in the city complaining about the lack of options when it comes to healthy food they can grab quickly,” said Jamie. “Australia does that really well, with healthy fast food that has real vibrancy and personality that you don’t really get here in the UK.

“We’re taking that inspiration from Bondi Beach and bringing it to life in the heart of Manchester at Kampus – with super nutritious bowls that pack a real flavour punch.”
