Suko opens Zapp Thai Market

5th Augsut 2022

Sukho Group has opened a new supermarket venture as a brand extension to its Thai casual concept, Zaap Thai, in Nottingham.

Zaap Thai Market has opened on the former Lifestyle Express shop in the city’s Upper Parliament Street. The supermarket stocks a range of Asian groceries. Zaap Thai ready meals, made by the group’s chefs, and a selection of hand-prepared Zaap starter packs are also available, plus a range of grab-and-go hot food and bubble tea for takeaway.

A spokeman said: “Our story begins in 2015 when we launched our sister restaurant Zaap Thai in Nottingham in Bromley Place. During the years that followed Zaap built a fantastic reputation and is now one of the most popular restaurants in Nottingham, still offering the same quality food in funky street-style surroundings as we did when we first opened. Fast forward seven years to 2022, we’re now opening Zaap Thai Market – an oriental supermarket with a twist! We want to be able to offer a place where you can find the unique Asian ingredients we use in our kitchens, but also a wide range of Asian staples including exotic fruit and vegetables you might not have seen elsewhere.”

The compat is looking to open two or three new sites a year for Zaap Thai, and plans to move south after further northern expansion. The group, which also operates the three-strong Thai fine dining brand Sukhothai, recently opened its sixth Zaap site in seven years, in Sheffield.
