Brisbane based brownie pioneer Dello Mano, recently opened its latest chocolate destination in Tattersall’s Arcade where they will serve their acclaimed brownies, cakes, chocolates, delicacies and high teas.
They have moved into the 50sqm tenancy within the Tattersall’s Arcade after signing a five year lease with a five year option.
Dello Mano is a family business established by co-founders Deb and Bien Peralta in 2006 who set out to reinvent the humble brownie and in doing so switched on the Australian brownie revolution.
Dello Mano also operates from a base in Teneriffe as well as selling their sweet offerings online. “We are proud to be part of a premium retail precinct that is part of Brisbane’s heritage,” Deb said.
“Dello Mano follows a wave of established local operators to enter the Tattersall’s Arcade in recent times, including AG Designer Jeweller and ESQ Male Grooming,” said Sam Degn, Executive of Retail Leasing at Colliers International who negotiated the lease.
“The arcade is now fully leased and totally transformed from the old traditional retailers to new modern, established local operators.
“Dello Mano chose the new CBD location as an opportunity to showcase their premium food offering in in a great central city location,” Ms Degn said.
Tattersall’s Arcade is situated on the corner of bustling Queen and Edward Streets, in the heart of the Brisbane’s retail precinct. Anchored by Canturi and Longchamp, Tattersall’s Arcade is a lifestyle destination that celebrates both local and national operators.
According to Ms Degn, Dello Mano is also set to benefit from the Edward Street $11 billion beautification project which is likely to inject more shoppers and diners into the area.
“The impending Edward Street ‘Luxury Runway’ project will be Brisbane’s premier high-end retail core and will transform Edward Street into a showcase street to complement the new retail precinct that has emerged over the past few years.
“Brisbane City Council’s plan is to widen foothpaths, reduce the road from four to three lanes, and carry out beautification work from Queen Street to Charlotte Street that will include tree planting, stylised lighting and seating,” said Ms Degn.
