Greedy Gordons, a Northamptonshire pub and retail company, has announced plans to open two pubs in the county.
Richard Gordon and Sonya Harvey, co-owners of the group, have run The Red Lion at Cranford for the past four years, and aim to create 60 new jobs with this new venture.
The Pig and Waffle in Grafton Underwood, near Kettering, is a private lease with Boughton Estates, and is set to open in early June, with Gordon and Harvey hoping it will become a “village hub for locals” to meet throughout the day for food and drinks, including brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and tapas.
Meanwhile, The Snooty Fox in Lowick, which was acquired by the group before the Covid-19 pandemic, will open its doors in early July.
The pub, which was due to open last April, will offer a place for locals to drink and dine.
Gordon, who has worked in the hospitality industry for 35 years, including in food development for McManus Pub Company and as an area manager for Northamptonshire Inns, said: “Our focus at present is being able to finally welcome customers into our wonderful new pubs and continue to safely maximise trade at The Red Lion.
“But we have an appetite for opening further sites in Northamptonshire, including Northampton, when the time and opportunities are right.”
