An authentic taste of Sheffield is coming to the Crystal Peaks shopping centre with the opening of a new branch of Beres Pork Shop.
The Beres hot pork sandwich has been hailed as a Sheffield favourite for the past 50 years and will now be available for the first time at the award winning shopping centre.
The business was launched in 1961 by Hungarian butcher Sandor Beres, who left his home city of Budapest during the 1956 uprising and, after rebuilding his life in Sheffield, decided to also re-establish his business.
Mr Beres and his wife Eileen were eventually joined in the business by son Richard and then by daughters Helen and Catherine.
The company has expanded with shops across north Sheffield and a factory on Rawson Spring Road, where the family bakes its own bread.
Alongside its celebrated hot pork sandwiches, Beres also specialises in savouries, bread and cakes, cooked meats and home and party catering.
The company’s launch at Crystal Peaks in Sheffield will be the twelfth Beres store.
Centre manager Lee Greenwood said: “We are delighted to welcome Beres to Crystal Peaks.
“We are confident that our customers will all appreciate this addition to our range of fresh food outlets and we are always very pleased to be working alongside brands with such strong links to the Sheffield community.”
Crystal Peaks Shopping Mall, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has 600,000 sq ft of retail space with a range of high street stores including Marks and Spencer, Clarks, Burton, Next, Dorothy Perkins, M & Co, Boots, WH Smith, New Look, Iceland, H Samuel and Sainsbury’s .
The centre also has a popular indoor market operated by Sheffield City Council.
Crystal Peaks is very proud of its award winning environmental initiatives, including its collection of bee hives on the roof of the shopping centre, helping to combat the decline of the local bee population.
Other environmental projects swift boxes, bee-friendly planting and a nature reserve.
