Naturally Fast Food chain LEON opens a second restaurant in Manchester today, outside Piccadilly Station, two months after it opened in the intu Trafford Centre.
The new restaurant will give Piccadilly guests the chance to enjoy its naturally fast food and sample items from LEON’s new ‘Sunny Inside’ summer menu, which launches on Wednesday 21 June.
Piccadilly customers will also have the chance to try classic LEON dishes such as the fishfinger wrap, Moroccan meatballs and the super salad.
This restaurant will be one of the few LEONs to have a ‘grab and go’ fridge, stocked with LEON drinks, shakes and salads, for those commuters and travellers who can’t wait for LEON’s fresh food.
The opening of this restaurant will take the total number of LEONs to 49, and to celebrate the chain will be treating members of their Piccadilly LEON club to samples of LEON food, and handing out vouchers and goodies.
John Vincent, CEO of LEON said: “We’ve been blown away by the big warm welcome given to us by Mancunians, who told us they want us in the city centre. So that’s where we’re off to. Drop in and say hi, we’d love you to try our new menu and tell us what you think.”
The new restaurant has created 25 jobs in the area and will provide seating for 50 guests at a time. It will initially open from 06.00- 23.00 Monday to Friday, 07.00-23.00 Saturday and 08.00 to 23.00.
The store will offer delivery via Deliveroo and as with other LEON stores it will offer a 15% discount to students and NHS staff.
The design of the restaurant includes two classic ‘twisted’ columns, that Mancunians will recognise from the Piccadilly Station. LEON has kept them in place and redecorated with a LEON finish. This is part of the brand’s determination to reflect the local neighbourhood it is part of and respect its architectural heritage.
