Following the recent and successful letting of Unit 2, 158 High Street, Burton upon Trent, Commercial Property Agent, Rushton Hickman, are pleased to announce the successful letting of Unit 1, 158 High Street, the remaining ground floor suite!

In 2020, T&T Assets Limited acquired the building from Rushton Hickman and subsequently transformed the first and second floors into residential accommodation, while also renovating the ground floor into two premium retail / office units.

The 351 sq. ft. retail space is in a prime location in Burton town centre, directly facing Station Street, a popular pedestrianised shopping area with heavy foot traffic.

Sam’s BBQ & Bakes is the new tenant in Unit 1, 158 High Street. Run by a brother and sister duo, this new town centre spot offers a variety of traditional American slow smoked meats, such as pulled pork and beef brisket, all seasoned with their own special rubs. They also serve toasted sandwiches, homemade macaroni cheese and nachos with signature homemade sauces. In the mornings, they have a breakfast special of Belgian style waffles with added sides, as well as freshly baked goods like cake pops, New York style cookies and brownies.

On behalf of Sam’s BBQ & Bakes, Abigail commented, “I was extremely happy with the service provided by Stephanie and Taylor at Rushton Hickman; they were very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. I would 100% recommend.”

Taylor Millington, Surveyor at Rushton Hickman, who negotiated the deal, said, “I am confident that Sam’s BBQ & Bakes will be a great addition to the busy high street and we are excited to see them succeed due to their unique food offerings. We take pride in our efficient two-month turnaround time and this deal further emphasises the continuing demand for high-quality retail space.”

Carl Tranter, Director of T&T Assets, said, “Rushton Hickman delivered their usual high standard service when recently letting one of our retail units in Burton upon Trent. It is not the first time we have worked with them and will not be the last. Taylor was efficient and responsive and communicated effectively with prospective tenants ensuring realistic expectations.”
