It’s official!
TRIB3 Manchester Deansgate opens in June as part of the Qbic Hotel development

As the phased easing of restrictions continues across the UK, we are very proud to announce a second store in Manchester as part of the Qbic Hotel development on Manchester Deansgate. This site will operate alongside our Circle Square studio in the North Pavilion where we recently announced we are building our global headquarters and training academy. Both stores are due to open in June.

Situated on the lower ground floor of the hotel, TRIB3 Manchester Deansgate will have a standalone entrance for customers to use as well as being accessible via the hotel for guests wishing to take advantage of a high-intensity workout class during their stay. Featuring a 48-spot studio, onsite mixology bar and signature industrial-luxe design, the Manchester Deansgate site is our first ever to be located within a hotel and is the first store for one of our founding franchisees, Katie Kopka.

Katie, who plans to split her time between Manchester and her home in Reading, says: ‘To be opening in such an amazing location in the heart of Manchester is a dream come true and I feel the TRIB3 brand and in-store experience will really resonate with the Deansgate community. Our partnership with the Qbic team means we can assemble some really exciting offers that make us stand out from the competition in terms of the experience and value we can offer our customers.’

TRIB3 CEO and founder Kevin Yates adds: ‘Naturally, it’s exciting to keep realising the potential of the TRIB3 business model in new ways and to fit out our first hotel-based store but it’s also great to find partners like Qbic who share similar values to us, particularly around sustainability and customer experience. I am also delighted to see Katie getting ready to open the doors to her first studio in what is undoubtedly one of the best locations in our network. She’s been on the journey with us from the initial fruition of the deal with the Qbic hotel group when the site was yet to begin construction and obviously it’s been a longer wait because of the events of the last year but this is going to be a seriously unmissable store and Katie brings such passion and energy to the whole process.’

Qbic Manchester is the newest addition to Qbic's portfolio of hotels which fuse design, sustainability and affordability. General Manager, Robert Alam, says: ‘Our team can’t wait to welcome guests to our newest Qbic and to experience a next-level onsite workout with TRIB3! Located in Deansgate, in the heart of this vibrant city, my vision is for the hotel to become Manchester’s most loved hangout offering a home-from-home, an informal workspace, a welcoming base from which to explore this great city. The addition of TRIB3 and its signature three-zoned group workouts, alongside the expansive Motley dining area, will really make us a go to location.’
