The Foodie Friday Headline Sponsor is

Orbit Developments

Orbit Developments is the commercial division of The Emerson Group and was established in 1971 by Peter Emerson Jones.

Since then the company has grown to be one of the country’s largest private commercial property developers and investment management companies, operating in the North West and South East of England and the USA with an extensive portfolio of over 200 buildings and 2,000 tenants across 7.5 million sq ft.

As the town’s biggest commercial landlord, Orbit are committed to helping improve and enhance the image of Stockport town centre as a good commercial destination by lending their support to key community events throughout the year.

“We immediately recognised the importance of Foodie Friday both as a driver to the local economy and as the heart of a sociable community hub,” says Tony Jones, Managing Director of Orbit Developments.

Our sponsorship ensures that the ever-popular event is sustainable and commercially viable, securing its future as a community event for the benefit of Stockport Town Centre.

We hope that our sponsorship of Foodie Friday along with the Old Town Fringe Festival over the last two years will further strengthen the town’s position as a key destination to shop and socialise.

Orbit Developments Business of the Month


We are a specialist recruitment agency who source exceptional candidates for jobs around the UK. Our four core divisions include Commercial, Engineering, Technical and Senior Appointments, and cover Permanent, Temporary and Contractor vacancies.

F1rst Commercial Recruitment have recently moved into the multi-storey commercial office space at Regent House from Deansgate in central Manchester. The staffing specialists have taken an office on the 10th floor of the town centre building, which accommodates their staff as well as a separate meeting area for candidate interviews.

Sharon Seville, manager of F1rst Commercial Recruitment, explained the rationale behind the move: “Working in central Manchester was great, but after six years of commuting from Marple, it took its toll. I’m a working mum, and juggling the school run with the commute into the city was a bit of a challenge! I needed a much better work/life balance.”

The 10th floor of Regent House boasts excellent views across Stockport Town Centre, notably of the up and coming Redrock leisure development, which Sharon believes will bring a much needed buzz to the town centre.

“I’m amazed by how much the town is doing in terms of regeneration. It feels like a good time to be based in Stockport. It’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement of what the town will become!”

As Stockport’s largest commercial landlord, Orbit Developments strives to go the extra mile and drive engagement among their occupiers. Its quarterly ‘Meet Your Neighbour’ events at Regent House give new customers the opportunity to get to know other businesses in the building.

“It gave us the chance to meet our neighbours and do a spot of networking, whilst receiving updates from the Orbit team about our building and the goings on in Stockport. I also learned about the SKone reward card – which is a great idea and an added perk of being in an Orbit property!”
