Annie’s Burger Shack Derby

Annie's Burger Shack chose to open in Derby for their second location, after trading successfully since 2009 in Nottingham.

Having viewed several properties in the city, they agreed to purchase the Grade II Listed First Church of Christ Scientist building on Friary Street in late 2015.

Over the next two years, we played a key role in liaising between the directors at Annie's and officers at Derby City Council, assisting with overcoming obstacles in the planning application, and securing funding support to bring c. 35 jobs to Derby.

Annie's opened in December 2018 and has been welcomed enthusiastically to the city by thousands of happy customers.


We needed to find out who and where we should go to and Marketing Derby was our first point of call. We met up, and they were completely fantastically helpful in bridging the gap with Derby City Council and helping to communicate what we could do for Derby and what the Council could do for us. We were definitely welcomed with open arms which was a huge thing, so I would definitely recommend going to Marketing Derby.
