Building upon a year of milestones in 2019 with over one million flats sold, MANA! announced that it will officially open its third location in Hong Kong’s Starstreet Precinct in August 2019, marking a healthy expansion of the brand’s mission to inspire change by serving “food that does not cost the earth.”
MANA! has pioneered the plant-based fast-casual market in Hong Kong since 2012, serving “fast slow food” and operating “zero waste” – plant-based, whole-food, served fast, in an eco-friendly & responsible manner, packaged & ready to go.
The Company’s original MANA! Central branch on Wellington Street has become a popular destination serving over 500 customers daily, while its second MANA! PoHo branch in Sheung Wan is a popular weekend spot for brunch, books, and V-Coffee.
Its third location, MANA! Starstreet, will be a 1,600 square-foot flagship store offering MANA!’s signature flats, plant-based burgers, a build-your-own salad bar, plant-fueled V-Coffee bar, organic booze bar including a signature G&K cocktail and bespoke gluten-friendly beer, and an all-weather community hang out space to host conscious events, talks, screenings & concerts.
“We are ready to build upon our success as a brand and embark beyond Central and Sheung Wan to bring our food revolution to Admiralty, Wanchai, and beyond. With MANA! Starstreet, we are excited to join Swire Properties’ vision to transform the area into a wellness and sustainability destination,” said Bobsy Gaia, founder of MANA!.
“I have personally waited for this moment for a very long time, since I pulled out of LIFE (Café) circa 2009. MANA! has always played a unique role in Hong Kong with its emphasis on solid vibes, holistic atmosphere & cultural community. Finally, with a larger space, we can bring these to the fore of what we offer & allow many more people to enjoy our MANA! vibes,” he continued.
Theresa Leung, General Manager of Pacific Place, said, “We are delighted to welcome MANA! to the Starstreet Precinct, a wonderful addition that will further enhance the area’s unique and diverse lifestyle offerings. MANA! is part of our commitment to offering healthy and fresh new experiences that emphasise wellbeing, and to building strong vibrant communities.”
