Burger giant Five Guys has opened its first branch in Paris – much to the delight of a UK supplier that fits all the lighting for its kitchen and front-of-house areas.

Milton Keynes-based Lyco was awarded the contract to supply specialist decorative and commercial lighting for the first unit in the capital, as well as a second site that is planned to open on the Champs Elysee.

Lyco specifically sourced and manufactured lighting, and colour-matched various products including the exact colour of the white in-ceiling lights.

Closer to home, the company has just fitted out Five Guys’ newest unit in Watford as part of a supply agreement that encompasses the UK and the Middle East, as well as Europe.

Since opening, Five Guys has gained a cult following across the UK and now operates 40 stores. In total it has more than 1,300 outlets worldwide.

Lyco also supplies lighting to other high-profile restaurant and hotel brands in the UK, including Itsu, Paul, Ping Pong, Barwork, MOD Pizza, Marriot, Celtic Manor Resort, Holiday Inn Express and the Malmaison.
