We finally know what will become of the old confectionery and pastry shop The squirrelwhich existed for 50 years in rue Fabert, right in the city center of Metz (Moselle).
The emblematic establishment was located a stone’s throw from Place Saint-Jacques, at the exit of Rue des Clercs, before its final closure in 2019.
Haag Immobilier has announced the imminent arrival of the Chamas Tacos brand, whose specialty is “French tacos”, a dish that is rapidly expanding in French fast food.
One of its competitors, O’Tacoshad already wished to settle there several years ago, before finally opening in the rue de Ladoucette, on the other side of the place Saint-Jacques.
More than 50 restaurants in France, including 3 in the Grand Est
The brand created in 2014 now has 60 restaurants : 52 in France and eight in Belgium. She defines herself as the “leader of French tacos in 2022”.
Chamas Tacos is preparing to open its first point of sale in Lorraine. The brand was already present in the Grand Est, with an establishment in the Marne, in Reims, as well as two in the Haut-Rhin, in Colmar and Mulhouse.
Work should begin in the coming weeks, according to Haag Immobilier.
A project of apartments above the restaurant
The upcoming opening of Chamas Tacos is only part of the project that concerns the entire building.
According to Francis Haag, director and founder of Haag Immobilier interviewed by Lorraine News“this opening is part of the project of rehabilitation of the buildingwhich also includes a return of the floors to the inhabitants to create new apartments downtown “.
Thus, these are five new homes which must emerge within the building. “The objective is to put this building back in the circuit of the revitalization of the city center, as is currently done on rue Serpenoise”, adds Francis Haag.
