TGI Fridays has revealed it will open a new branch just two days after indoor dining is set to resume in the UK.
The casual dining chain plans to fire up the kitchen at its Lincoln branch from Wednesday 19 May.
The restaurant, which is located on the high street, will open for indoor and outdoor dining with Covid-19 safety measures in place to safeguard both its guests and its team.
It is one of 14 sites across the UK that will serve a special ‘Famous at Fridays’ menu, which pays homage to its original offer in 1965.
More than 35 full and part-time jobs will be created at the Lincoln branch.
Robert Cook, CEO at TGI Fridays, said: “We are beyond excited to open our new restaurant in Lincoln and invite guests to celebrate the easing of lockdown with us. Opening Fridays Lincoln is a key part of our strategy moving forward as we invest in the local area and continue to grow Fridays after what has been a tough year for all businesses.
“We’re also pleased to announce that the restaurant will join the exclusive group of 14 Famous at Fridays restaurants which celebrate our unique heritage. As part of these exciting changes, we have invested in the return of classic dishes made with quality ingredients.
“We are re-energising our iconic bars where new and classic cocktails handcrafted by our expert bartenders bring excitement and theatre, all of which will be complemented by consistently brilliant Fridays service.”
