Callum Mortimer, director in the retail team at CBRE which advised Five Guys, says: “Five Guys’ endlessly customisable burgers and dedication to freshness and quality have seen the brand move from strength to strength in the UK. Having also concluded deals with Five Guys in Aberdeen and Dundee city centre recently we were delighted to help secure such a prominent Edinburgh city centre location.
