TGI Friday's puts deliveries back on the menu
By Rob Freeman | 1st May 2020
TGI Friday's is the latest restaurant chain to announce a return to business - with Gloucestershire among the places to benefit.
The company is to reopen 24 restaurants around the country with a reduced menu for deliveries and a click and collect service.
Its Cheltenham branch in Gloucester Road is among those which will reopen, but the restaurant at Gloucester Quays will remain closed under the coronavirus restrictions.
Chief executive Robert B Cook said: "We can't wait to re-fire the grills. These initial sites have been chosen as we either own and can control the car park or the landlord has given us dedicated access.
"We will be restoring delivery services at the same locations via Just Eat and Deliveroo.
"We will continue to monitor UK Government advice, but after an initial trial we aim to extend the rollout as soon as it is safe to do so."
TGI becomes the latest chain to start trading again with a takeaway or delivery service with Burger King, KFC and Pret A Manger all opening selected stores while McDonald's is trialling new systems behind closed doors.
