A spokesperson said the company wanted to strengthen its presence in Gloucester city centre, where it already has a travel agency.
He added: "People working in Gloucester and other city centres, have shown they want high quality, good value food that can be consumed immediately.
"Our Food To Go format is designed to satisfy this requirement."
Work has been taking place for a few weeks to transform the former Animal clothing branch on the corner of Eastgate Street.
Kings Walk general manger Peter White hopes the opening will attract other traders.
He said: "We are really happy they are joining the line-up at Kings Walk.
"We hope we can attract additional tenants into the centre on the back of it going in."
The centre has four empty units but Mr White said talks are taking place with interested retailers.
He kept tight-lipped about details but hopes to make an announcement within the next few months.
He said they would also be looking to fill the HMV unit quickly once it has shut.
The branch is due to close soon after the company went into administration in January.
