Leon announces opening date for its first drive-thru in West Yorkshire

The drive-thru forms part of Leon’s mission to ‘make it easier for even more people to eat well’, with its most accessible menu offer to date and a focus on family eating.

Leon has announced it will open its first drive-thru restaurant in Gildersome, Leeds, West Yorkshire on Wednesday 24th November 2021.

The new Leon drive-thru has created 30 new jobs for the local area and it is located near Morley on the A650 Wakefield Road, close to the M62 and M621 junctions. 

Leon said it offers an “accessible and convenient option for more people to eat well and live well”.

Throughout the drive-thru menu, guests will be provided gluten-free, veggie and plant-based options, in addition to its exclusive dishes. The breakfast menu is a completely vegetarian offer and the site will also have a range of vegan shakes.

Additionally, the new site is launching its seasonal Christmas menu a week ahead of the rest of the Leon estate. Meanwhile, the rest of the all-day menu includes “all the usual Leon favourites”, such as carbon neutral burgers, baked waffle fries, warm salads and grilled wraps, alongside breakfast and lunchtime meal deals.

In addition, the Gildersome drive-thru will reportedly focus on family eating and it has an expanded children’s menu that includes a ‘pick n mix’ feature.

Meanwhile, Leon has collaborated with Karma Soda to bring to market Karma Soda on draft, providing “the first clean, additive-free and ethical draft soda offer”.

Glenn Edwards, managing director of Leon Restaurants, said: “This is a significant milestone for Leon. We are excited to be opening our first ever drive-thru restaurant in West Yorkshire, expanding our Leon family where we already have such a loyal fanbase.

“The new drive-thru will be joining our restaurants in Leeds train station, Leeds Delivery Kitchen and Leeds Skelton Lake Motorway services offering Yorkshire even more opportunity to try Naturally Fast Food whilst creating 30 new jobs for talented local people.”

He added: “We cannot wait to welcome guests through the door and to celebrate our opening, and super excitingly, the first lucky drive-thru customer will be awarded a £1,000 Leon voucher to spend.”
