Five Guys, the burger chain that claims there are more than 250,00 ways to order a burger at their restaurants, is moving in on the North.
The US burger chain, which does not use freezers preferring to cook everything fresh on the day, will be opening on Leicester’s Cheapside on 19 November in what used to be a branch of Santander Bank opposite the Highcross Shopping Centre.
The 110-seat restaurant will sell its signature hand made burgers alongside milkshakes made to order in a range of flavours.
Five Guys Leicester will create 40 new jobs, according to a report in the Leicester Mercury.
Meanwhile work is under way for a Five Guys outlet at the old Rat and Parrot building in Queens Square, Liverpool which is currently undergoing a £1m refurbishment.
The new site is set to open before Christmas and will be competing against Nando’s, La Tasca and Buffalo Jacks.
Five Guys, with more than 1200 sites in the US, currently has 35 sites in the UK and has plans for more openings.
