Founder Raphale Evans said:

“We opened our Ardwick store in 2019 with the sole aim of bringing better options to our community. Now, in 2023, we can’t wait to share that ethos at Contact and beyond, providing access to plant-based Caribbean classics centered around flavour, authenticity and innovation. I’m very proud to have found a new home in Contact; not only to continue some of the great work we started in Ardwick but also share our message – and our food – with Contact’s audiences, neighbours, staff and artists”.

Full of heart and soul, think jackfruit burgers, warming curries and Jamaican classics.

ARMR Café and Kitchen are open 10 – 4 Monday to Saturday, and until 6:30pm on show days!

Come down to Contact and get stuck in!

Contact’s AD/CEO Keisha Thompson said:

“When seeking a new food and drink partner for Contact, I couldn’t have conceived of a better offering than what ARMR bring to the table. Their drive and determination to supply the absolute best produce to their customers, with a focus on quality and accessibility, mirrors Contact’s own mission to uplift and empower our community. I know ARMR will be perfectly at home in our space, and I can’t wait to see what brilliant ideas they’ll bring to life”.

ARMR, we can’t wait to see what you have in store for Oxford Road!
