The Common Man Roadside is the newest tenant in Tru by Hilton Manchester Downtown Hotel located in the “Silicon Millyard,” an area of Manchester with a concentration of more than 30 tech firms.
Launched in 2016, Hilton’s Tru brand is targeted to a younger demographic, with lobby areas designed for meeting and socializing, community workspaces, and space for games. Tru broke ground in February 2019 with plans to open in the fall of 2020 and is already proving to be a desirable location for tenants, according to broker Amy Chhom and agent Matt Toolin of The Chhom Group, a commercial real estate firm that facilitated the agreement.
The Common Man Roadside will feature made-to-order and grab-and-go items with an emphasis on take-out with mobile and online ordering capabilities.
“We are excited to continue expanding our concept and to grow our brand,” commented Brad Pernaw of The Common Man Roadside. “The Millyard area has so much history and character, and we could not pass on the opportunity of being in the epicenter of commerce in New Hampshire.”
At Tru, The Common Man Roadside will have both a 1,600 square foot café and coffee shop as well as a 3,000 square foot restaurant. The restaurant will seat 120 and include a bar and outdoor patio.
“After many years of planning, we are pleased to welcome The Common Man Roadside to the project, says developer Peter Flotz. “We continue to seek solutions to complement the one of a kind Manchester Millyard experience.”
