Case Study



With its origins in the Cornish seaside town of St Ives, Hubbox offer American inspired street food and great drinks. They are fiercely proud of their award-winning burgers, made using 11 day dry-aged Cornish rare breed beef. Their hotdogs are made from UK free-range pork and they choose their suppliers based on the provenance of their products. All this adds up to a fantastic menu and amazingly flavourful food.


The Challenge

Hubbox have approached the growth of their business in a measured and careful way. Knowing that they wanted to expand but only if the locations were absolutely perfect for them in every way, they needed expert help and guidance to help them understand exactly where to look to for their next restaurants. With ambitious growth plans in a crowded, busy market, it is imperative that every property is fully interrogated to ensure it is fit for purpose and the surrounding population has the right demographic.

Insight genuinely have our best interests at heart.

Our Insight

It is important to us to understand as much about the business as we possibly can and become, essentially, their property department.  By analysing Hubbox’s model in their existing, successful restaurants and immersing ourselves in their business, we captured exactly what makes Hubbox so great where it is. We then took that information and used it to closely match other locations where there was a similar demographic and geography.


The Outcome

Searching out perfectly located properties in the targeted towns, negotiating the leases, engaging with the legal teams, we have worked alongside Hubbox all the way through the process, ensuring them of the best possible outcomes. We have secured a number of exciting properties for the brand and continue to work with them bringing further restaurants to life in perfect locations.

“Hubbox have exciting plans to continue their growth. In the current climate it is more important than ever that we choose our sites with extreme care and with every bit of information possible to hand to enable us to make smart decisions. We need a partner that understands our business and that we can trust to genuinely have our best interests at heart. Insight have proved time and time again that they can deliver on their promise to bring Hubbox the best opportunities. They have brought some tricky deals to conclusion for us with great results, informing and advising us every step of the way. We look forward to continuing to partner with them to secure further stunning sites for Hubbox as we continue to grow.”
