TGI Fridays has opened what it calls its most environmentally friendly restaurant ever in Milton Keynes as part of a wider plan to build on the brand’s commitment to being a greener and more energy efficient business.
The new restaurant design features solar PV panels on the roof that generate part of the electrical supply required for the building, while a new open plan ‘shotgun kitchen’ allows guests to see their food being cooked. An island bar serving the brand’s famous cocktails takes the focal point of the 266-cover restaurant.
Located within one of Milton Keynes’ popular shopping centres, the new TGI’s has created 85 new jobs in the town and the interior design takes inspiration from the famous Snowzone nearby.
General manager, Antonia Osborne, said: “We’re thrilled to not only be opening our second restaurant here in Milton Keynes, where there’s clearly a huge appetite for Fridays, but also proud to be green trailblazers for TGI Fridays in the UK.”
