Weezy is a brand-new on-demand grocery service that delivers in 15 minutes or under, and it has officially launched in Manchester today – just in time for a rare sunny weekend.
It offers a carefully curated range of over 2,000 high-quality products at retail prices, including alcoholic drinks, dairy, snacks, party games like Twister, and pharmacy products for emergency needs.
As well as working with wholesalers, Weezy also sources groceries from independent bakers, butchers and markets – meaning they’re always able to offer fresh, localised produce.
And if that’s not enough to pique your interest, the first 200 orders of £20 or more in Manchester will also get a FREE bottle of Bottega Gold Prosecco.
The offer runs from this Friday evening until Sunday at midnight, and the promocode – GOLD100 – is automatically available at checkout.
New Manchester customers can also get £10 off their first two orders at Weezy with the code: WELCOME10.
Weezy launched back in July 2020, finding success in London, Bristol and Brighton – Manchester is the brand’s first location in the North of England.
Talking about the launch, Kristof Van Beveren, Co-founder and CEO of Weezy, said: “Manchester was the natural next choice for us.
“We know that it’s one of the most eco-friendly cities in the UK and that Manchester residents share our values.
“Our service helps to further reduce fresh food waste and packaging, and enable healthier lifestyles, with all groceries being sustainably delivered by bike or electric moped in a matter of minutes.”
Weezy has also partnered with what3words to make every location easier to find and every delivery seamless.
This new partnership enables customers to order their groceries to wherever they happen to be, whether that’s a hard-to-find address or a bench in a local park.
Kristof added: “We’re excited to be offering our customers what they want, when they need it.
“With lockdown easing in the UK, we know that friends and family want to get together safely outside and we wanted to make it easy for them to get quality products anywhere.
“Now they can meet for a picnic or a BBQ without having to carry anything there. Weezy can deliver a full shop or just some beers.”
He continued: “It’s convenience without compromise. Customers simply add in their what3words address at checkout and can sit back while they wait for their Weezy delivery.”
The Weezy app is available to download now, both on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Lazy Sundae opens this weekend with bao ice cream sandwiches and other goodies
Serving up ice cream, pancakes, bubble tea and much more
Lazy Sundae’s grand opening is happening this weekend, on Saturday May 8th, and if you have a sweet tooth you’re not going to want to miss it.
The first 50 customers through the door can get their hands on some exclusive goodie bags, filled with things like Lazy Sundae tropical-themed cutlery, a Lazy bottle (premium bubble tea with a panna cotta pudding/aloe vera base) and a Tote Bag.
Lazy Sundae’s menu consists of three core elements: Premium Bubble Tea, Souffle Pancakes and Artisan Ice Creams.
All drinks are handmade and fresh to order with specials including their Strawberry Matcha Oat Latte and ‘Lazy Bottles’ that include a panna cotta pudding base.
The ice cream offering features a range of popular cultural flavours, including Milo, Cereal Milk, Taro and Vietnamese Ice Coffee, and they even do a pineapple bao ice cream sandwich.
Lazy Sundae was meant to open a year ago but was postponed due to the Covid pandemic, but this gave the team time to hone and perfect their delicious treats.
Founder Jacqueline Dang is an entrepreneur with a background in setting up Manchester’s first bubble tea store, Bobo Tea situated in Manchester Arndale.
She says Lazy Sundae is a ‘space where people can enjoy our products and be culturally educated on Asian inspired desserts, we want to be able to share our love for travel inspired flavours and desserts from the Far East with a modern twist’.
Co-founder Kwoklun Dang added: “Customers can expect to be transported somewhere warm, our flavours are inspired by some of our favourite destinations around the world.”
He lists Bali, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan and Hong Kong as sources of inspiration for the range of products on offer.
Both founders are dog lovers and as a result Lazy Sundae will be a pooch friendly establishment – there’ll also be a dog friendly lactose free ice cream available.
Lazy Sundae will be open every day from 12pm to 8pm, and is located in the Northern Quarter, at 108 Tib Street, M4 1LR.

There’s a pub with a huge beer garden next to Manchester Airport’s runway
Perfect for watching the world go by
One of the best parts of waiting to jet off for a holiday is having a pint or two or three in the airport before take off.
Sadly we can’t experience this joy at the moment, as international travel is currently off the cards due to lockdown restrictions.
What we can do, however, is head down to the airport for the next best thing – a drink in a huge beer garden directly beside one of Manchester Airport’s runways.
The Airport pub is situated next to one of the airport’s fully functioning runways, meaning you can watch the world come and go while you enjoy a drink.
The pub is the ideal spot to dream of your next holiday while we all wait for on update on when we can go abroad again, or just for enjoying a few drinks with mates while watching the planes.
When the pub reopens inside on May 17th you’ll be able to head indoors and take a seat in one of the booths, which are designed to look like circular turbine engines.
The dining area also features floor-to-ceiling glass windows meaning you can also watch the planes come and go from inside the venue.
The menu includes classics like burgers, pizzas, ribs, and fish and chips, as well as plenty of breakfast options – there’s also going to be a brand new menu introduced on May 17th.
The bar is fully stocked with beers, wines, gins, cocktails and whatever else you fancy, and they’re even doing 20% off fizz from 5pm-10pm on Fridays.
The Airport pub is open seven days a week from 10am to 10pm for walk-ins only, and is located at Ringway Rd, Manchester, M22 5WH.
