A new gourmet burger and chicken restaurant launching next month is offering a special discount to people with ginger hair.
Ginger’s Grill in Prestatyn, North Wales, will give all “genuine” redheads a 20% reduction on their bill when it opens in April
The offer is the idea of owner Mark Linaker, who was a redhead before shaving off his receding hair. He feels that “gingers deserve a break”.
“As one of my friends said to me, gingers have been getting stick for a long time now so it is time they got something back,” he told the Daily Post North Wales.
“I am a former ginger myself before I started losing my hair and decided to shave it all off, so I know what it is like to be a ginger. The deal will be 20% off a meal for a genuine ginger. I also think it is a novel idea and wanted to do something different.”
The 39-year-old has spent nearly two years developing the restaurant concept and finding the ideal site. It will employ 10 jobs once fit-out is complete and it starts trading.
“We will be serving good quality food and great milkshakes in a laid-back atmosphere, and I am confident it will work,” he said.
He hopes the venture will be successful enough to expand to other locations. “I think we have a good brand and I don’t want to stop at Prestatyn,” he said. “I want this in other towns in North Wales and maybe the north west of England, but it is one step at a time.”
Linaker revealed that the restaurant had suffered delays in its quest to open, but said it was on course to begin trading in the next four weeks. “It will be happy days for gingers in the area and also ginger tourists who I hope will flock to Prestatyn,” he added.
