Gourock Welcomes New Family-Owned Delicatessen To Kempock Street

A thriving new delicatessen is celebrating after opening its doors in Kempock Street in Gourock.

Wildfire Delicatessen and Café opened on 19 November and is the brainchild of local husband and wife team, Alex and Lorna McGilp.

The business offers a high-end range of takeaway options, with one half of their counter showing off a range of artisan cheeses, meats, pizzas, lasagne, and focaccia.

On the opposite side is sweeter options such as cakes as well as fresh olives, loaves of bread, snacks and lunch options, with a variety of retail options also available.

Alex and Lorna are both well known in the local hospitality trade with over 30 years experience, with the deli having plans to expand its café when Covid-19 restrictions are eased.

The property is owned by Inverclyde businessmen Sandy and James Easdale’s Dalglen Property Investments and has undergone a remarkable transformation, with many of the original features retained and enhanced from its origins as a dairy.

The latest tenancy is a further successful letting for Gourock-based commercial property services firm, Bowman Rebecchi, who acted as the agents on behalf of the owners with Rebecchi Architectural overseeing the renovation works.

Marco Rebecchi, Director of Bowman Rebecchi, said:

“Wildfire Delicatessen is a fantastic addition to what is already a healthy mix of independent retail, office, leisure and hospitality businesses in Gourock.

“Everyone is delighted with the outcome of the works, and it has been fantastic to see Alex and Lorna achieve their ambition. We would like to wish them both every success.”

Wildfire Delicatessen is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00. For more details, click here.
