Rochdale 'Refuels' on healthy takeaways

Date published: 27 July 2018

Greasy pizzas and deep-fried fish are off the menu as a brand-new healthy eating takeaway proves a huge success at Rochdale Exchange thanks to its delicious protein-based meals.

Shoppers young and old are fuelling up on Refuel’s mouthwatering menu. The street food-inspired café - run by business partners Dean Coker and Jack Redwood - offers a variety of fresh, nutritious dishes, all made on-site and ready to be collected by hungry customers within minutes of ordering outside JD Gym at Rochdale Exchange Shopping Centre. 

As well as proving a huge hit with gym-goers for its large range of protein-packed smoothies, it is fast becoming the number one choice among families, young people and those keen to grab a healthy meal on the go.

Commenting on the launch of the new café, Dean said: “We are thrilled with just how well our food is being received, not only by those who frequent the gym but by so many members of the community. Our customer base is growing from strength to strength as we provide a refreshing range of meals that are tasty but are quick and easy to make.”

This is Dean and Jack's second successful venture, with their first Refuel takeaway enterprise located in Chadderton in Oldham. This opened in May and is now a firm fixture among locals keen for a quick yet satisfying bite to eat.

Lorenzo O’Reilly, Centre Manager at Rochdale Exchange, is delighted to see Refuel take-off as a popular eating destination for visitors to the centre. He said: “This is an exciting dining concept and is clearly enticing a steady stream of fans who are thoroughly enjoying its choice in savoury and sweet dishes.

“It is a fantastic fit for our centre and has really cornered the market, appealing to gym members and also branching out across all demographics of Rochdale.

"We are very much looking forward to working with Refuel and supporting the business as it continues to grow.”
