Merenda 6000: Immochan Portugal opens new concept of food court in Alegro Castelo Branco shopping centre


Portugal, 2016-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — The new space, called Merenda 6000, has a unique style, where all the restaurants create a common and cosmopolitan area. This unique concept is the first in the region. Merenda 6000 intends to revitalize the Alegro food court, with its young and attractive look that will surely attract the locals.

Merenda 6000 was created to be “[…] … more than a dining room. It is a convenient and welcoming place throughout the day, in which we can receive students who study, for example” said Cristina Roxo, director of the shopping centre.

The opening ceremony took place with the presence of the Mayor of Castelo Branco, Luís Correia. “Alegro has done an excellent job in what we call adaptation to reality. In times of crisis, Alegro, instead of fleeing the area has grown by betting on solutions for the region.” Luís Correia

Events related to the Merenda 6000 continue until October and in the food court of Alegro we will host show cooking sessions with personalities of Portuguese cuisine (Filipa Gomes, from the channel 24 Kitchen, cooking bloggers, and a participant of Junior Masterchef Portugal).
