Foodwell, 1 New Bailey, Manchester

The brand-new concept houses a grab and go health deli, a 120-cover restaurant offering a diverse and mindful menu,  a wellness studio and event space as well as housing a stunning private dining area.

Open seven days a week, FoodWell is a destination venue that transforms from day time relaxed lunch, co-working space and yoga haven to a vibrant bar and restaurant in the evening to a laid-back brunch spot at the weekend with a wide-ranging food offering to suit all tastes whilst staying true to their Mind, Body and Soul ethos. In the studio, expect a full timetable of events and classes including Yoga, Meditation, Barre Core, Pilates and Chakra alignment.

Connectivity

Uncontended Connectivity
& 4g Failover

As a venue where the number of customers connecting to the internet during the day would be high, Foodwell required sufficient connectivity to provide a first class Wi-Fi experience.

An uncontended EFM circuit was installed that would provide sufficient bandwidth to provide a stable connection for Wi-Fi, EPOS and card payment terminals.  A failover 4g sim was also included to ensure in the unlikely event the circuit went offline, business continued as usual.

“Mind, body and soul is all about how we nurture and take care of ourselves day to day, being mindful and making conscious decisions about the food we eat and the drinks we drink without depriving ourselves. We aren’t here to preach, we are here to help and inform. Our main aim was to have a concept that disrupts the market – something people didn’t realise that they needed but once they’ve experienced it, they can’t live without it.”
