“CFC were the ideal choice as they already had a track record of finding similar operators for a number of other, both established and new, neighbourhoods elsewhere in London. They were quickly able to demonstrate a deep understanding of which businesses would be the best fit for the location through their knowledge of who is new, on the up, trending and as a result popular. We now have more than 25 independent retailers open at East Village.”

Retail is our thing

Having cut our teeth in London’s fast-paced retail scene, we know what retailers want.

Our knowledge and understanding of how commercial units are used by tenants give us a strong position to advise our institutional and private landlords and developers on the commercial strategy.

From pre-planning and initial master-planning stage right through to successful leasing and openings, we advise our clients with the final user in mind.


CF Commercial provides a fresh view on alternative tenant mix plans and target tenants to create fun and exciting new destinations within London. We aim to enliven the ground floor retail and leisure space with vibrant and creative operators who not only establish attractive places to live and work, but also attract visitors and tourists from across London. We have worked on schemes in all parts of London and beyond, from the Olympic Park down to East Croydon as well as prime sites within Zone 1.

Our agents use their ‘first-name basis’ relationships with operators, as well as ensuring that they are up to speed with all the new concepts coming through, to make sure that units are fully marketed as quickly as possible.

We aim to make the process as smooth as possible for Landlords by creating meticulous Heads of Terms and establishing strict timelines to get deals over the line.


CF Commercial has successfully assigned a number of leases for both restaurant and retail space across London for both independent and multiple operators, and are looking to take on new instructions. Whether you’re paying too much rent, your business is no longer profitable or you’re looking to retire, we can use our expert knowledge to help you find a solution.

Here is how we can help:

- Achieve high premiums
- Advising on who is looking for new space in your area
- Working to deadlines
- Working confidentially
- Managing the process through to conclusion, ensuring a stress-free experience from start to finish


We offer a bespoke and personalised service for tenants looking to acquire a new site. Our knowledge and understanding of local markets mean that we can assist tenants making the right decision on the best positioning within a location to drive the business forward in the best way possible.

Our experience negotiating on behalf of Landlord’s and Tenants means that we have a detailed understanding to give Tenants the best deal possible.
