Launching Cabana in Leeds


At the end of 2014, Cabana launched its first branch in the North of England within the Trinity development in Leeds. Recognising the competition from existing restaurants and new restaurants opening in Leeds and its location away from the main thoroughfare, Cabana wanted to ensure the Leeds community was talking about Cabana and help drive footfall amongst students, shoppers and office workers in Leeds city centre.


To raise awareness of Cabana ahead of launch in Leeds, help create a buzz around opening and drive footfall post launch
