Award-winning independent sandwich makers, Piece, open at Maxim

They are Scotland’s most famous Piece artists, renowned for their award-winning sandwiches. Now gourmet lunchtime champions, Piece, have opened their latest premises here at Maxim Park.

Piece are Scotland’s most successful independent sandwich makers, not only building their reputation on high-quality food but on their staff and the atmosphere in their shops.

Their new shop at Maxim Park officially opened today (July 18) and their seventh premises is their largest to date.

“We have been really excited about opening and had a great reaction from everyone at Maxim today. We had lots of people popping in, sitting in for lunch and we got some great feedback,” said Operations Manager, Jon McDonald. “It was just a great start.

“The site is fantastic and this is our biggest venue to date. It has more seats, more space, it’s a very big deal for us.

“One of the reasons we have been so excited about moving in is the landlords. The team at Maxim have been fantastic from the beginning. They have big plans for the park, they are keen to try something different and have been really welcoming.

“There is a big community of people already working here and it’s been great to be welcomed in and become a part of that.”

Piece is not your average sandwich shop and stand apart in a crowded market in Glasgow.

They use the freshest, local ingredients in their soups, sandwiches and breakfasts. All bread is baked on site while their coffee is freshly ground each morning.

They have also built their reputation on the atmosphere in their shops, the ‘experience’ customers enjoy there and their staff. Their ‘Piece Artists’ stay on with the company for the long haul and are given promotion opportunities, with the management team at Maxim stepping up from their other established shops.

They have also been named Glasgow’s sandwich shop of the year for a second year running by the readers of the Glasgow Live news website.

Piece’s arrival is the latest new development at Scotland’s largest business park following a £38million buy-out in October 2018 by Shelborn Asset Management.

The site currently includes the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), flexible workspace provider Spaces and infrastructure group Balfour Beatty among its tenants.

Ground-breaking immunotherapy research group, TC Biopharm, extended its premises at the park in March 2019, the same month support centre specialist Sitel (UK) agreed to lease almost 60,000 square feet across the Maxim 10 building on a ten-year lease, bringing up to 800 employees on site.

“We are delighted to welcome Piece as a new tenant,” said Mark Rabinowitz, director at Shelborn Asset Management. “Piece has built a fantastic reputation as one of Scotland’s best food outlets and its arrival is very exciting news for the park and our existing tenants.

“This is the latest in a number of plans we have for Maxim Park as we look to continue to build its reputation as the number one destination for any occupiers looking outside Glasgow.

“Our aim is to make Maxim Park the foremost office park in Scotland and the arrival of Piece helps set it apart from the competition.”
