Villa Express Brings a Taste of the Mediterranean to Derbion’s Food Terrace

Derbion, the popular shopping destination, is heating up its food scene with the exciting addition of Villa Express, a rising Mediterranean food brand. Set to open its first physical location in the UK, Villa Express will join Derbion’s vibrant food offering on Level 2 in July, creating a buzz among food enthusiasts.

Known for its modernized take on traditional Mediterranean recipes, Villa Express promises to tantalize taste buds with a menu filled with fresh and reinvented Mediterranean delights. Nestled next to German Doner Kebab and Burger & Sauce, the new eatery aims to provide shoppers with an array of healthy and delicious meal options.

The menu at Villa Express will feature a diverse selection of innovative and mouth-watering Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Guests can expect signature shawarmas, ROXBOX, sandwiches, custom-made meals, Greek fusion creations, and an enticing variety of sides and drinks. With a wide range of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options available, Villa Express ensures that there’s something for everyone to savour.

Originally hailing from Canada and founded in 2013, Villa Express has chosen Derbion as its inaugural location in the UK. Excitingly, three additional eateries are slated to open across the Midlands in the coming months, making the brand’s mark on the culinary scene.

Derbion has recently invested over £3.6 million in enhancing its dining options, including a £2 million refurbishment of its Food Terrace. The revitalized space now boasts a fresh new look, additional seating, and a host of new and enticing brands. Villa Express joins the ranks of esteemed establishments like Popeyes®, Burger & Sauce, and Mexican street-food sensation Tortilla.

Beth McDonald, Managing Director of Derbion, expressed her delight at Villa Express joining their ever-expanding dining lineup. She stated, “We’re excited to offer shoppers the chance to enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean—a brand-new cuisine choice within the centre.” McDonald emphasized that the investment in the Food Terrace and the addition of Villa Express reflect Derbion’s commitment to providing diverse dining experiences.
