By James Young | 9th September 2019
The burgers have hit the grill, the fryers are churning out chips and fast-food lovers are deciding whether they want bacon in their milkshakes as Five Guys opens its doors at Gloucester Quays.
The American luxury burger chain have opened next to Cineworld, becoming the latest food offering to serve the Quays.
Launched in the UK in 2013, Five Guys can trace their origins back to a family-run firm in Virginia in the 1980s and now have more than 1,500 outlets worldwide.
The 2,060ft unit - which has the feel of a 1950s American diner - is the 95th Five Guys outlet to open in the UK in the past six years. Five Guys have agreed a 15-year lease with the Quays
Jason Pullen, Managing Director at Lifestyle Outlets said last month that he was "excited" to be welcoming Five Guys to Gloucester.
"The brand has a huge following thanks to its amazing food offering and we're confident that it will quickly establish itself as a must-visit destination.
"Gloucester Quays continues to thrive thanks to its unique offering within the region combining great brands, attractions and amenities that people want to visit.
"Five Guys perfectly fits with our ethos as we target further growth and success in 2019."
Five Guys offer freshly-cooked burgers, hotdogs, fries and sandwiches and operate a 'no freezer, no microwave, no timer, no can-opener' ethos.
They source their beef from Ireland and put posters up in their stores showing where they source their potatoes for their fries.
A burger at Gloucester Quays will cost £6.95 with the most expensive, a bacon cheeseburger, costing £8.95.
Hot dogs range from £4.50 to £6.50 while regular fries cost £2.95 with a large Cajun fries coming in at £5.25.
