The Landing’s commercial director, Paul Billington, said:

“Social 7 is a really exciting development, both for our tenant communities and for the wider tech community. It will have connected spaces and this, along with the development of our brand new events and conference facilities, is all part of our strategic business plans.”

Carla Taylor, founder of Penelope’s in MediaCityUK, has been appointed to run Social 7’s food and drink operations. She said:

“This is a very exciting opportunity for my team. I’ve been running the Penelope’s businesses for nearly five years and we have always had a base at MediaCityUK, it has become home to us.

We’re planning on bringing a different approach to food and leaning on my experience in the food sector in New York with things like grazing tables, local produce – high quality, but reasonably priced.

We’re also planning a 30 variety gin bar and partnerships with local fresh food suppliers. My team takes pride on our personable service and we look forward to getting to know the tenants and catering for their needs.”
