AN AWARD-winning street food business has said it will open its new larger premises with more indoor seating at the end of February. 

Festival Street Kitchen, located in the food court just outside Festival Place, burst onto the scene in October 2016, and since then has become a staple in the town.

Replying to a comment on its Facebook page, Festival Street Kitchen said: “Planning on opening date end of February! Works have started.”

Alex and Danielle Menicou own the street food business, inspired to set it up after their worldwide travels.

Speaking to the Gazette earlier this year, Danielle said while their business is great in the summer they don’t do so well in the winter with a major factor the lack of indoor seating as the business is based outdoors.

The company is set to move into the former Tony and Guy and Bhavi Beauty units within Festival Place and will feature an upstairs area as well as open hatches for customers to "enjoy the smell of the food".
