Woolworths has mentioned potential future plans for a new food service concept store in a recent court cases.

The ‘Food Quarter’ concept was mentioned in a NSW court case that saw Woolworths win the right to stop About Life from transferring a lease to Harris Farm Markets. The lease issue was in regards to a space opposite a Woolworths supermarket in Sydney’s Double Bay.

In the court case, Woolworths Matthew Franich, General Manager of Property Management at Woolworths said that Woolworths may wish to use the space to establish “its own smaller innovative retail offering such as a Woolworths Food Quarter”.

In May 2016, Australian Food News first reported that Woolworths was testing a new food service concept called Food Quarter.

At the time, a Woolworths category manager said the test concept would include a sushi kiosk, mini bakery and rotating food trends such as tacos, burritos, Asian style noodle bowls, pizza and sub rolls.

The court case is the first mention of the Food Quarter Concept since May 2016.
