US restaurant chain is heading to Cheltenham

The location for a new restaurant in a multi-million pound leisure and retail hub in Cheltenham has been confirmed.

According to Cheltenham Borough Council planning documents, the US-based Five Guys restaurant chain will be moving into Unit 12 of the Brewery Quarter in the town.

Unit 12 was formerly occupied by the Real China restaurant.

Five Guys was founded by the Murrell family in 1986, starting out as just one restaurant in Virginia.

It now has nearly 1,500 locations spanning the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East.

With revenue last year of $832million last year, its menu includes burgers, hotdogs and milkshakes.

This latest development is another sign of how the Brewery Quarter is gradually taking shape, with Cosy Club, Brewhouse & Kitchen and Babel among other businesses to have been attracted to the location.
