Leon to open first Drive-Thru restaurant

The 50+ cover restaurant, which is set to open in Autumn 2021, is also the first new opening for the brand since its sale to EG Group in April 2021

Leon has unveiled the plans for its first Drive-Thru restaurant in West Yorkshire.

The new 2,000 sq. ft. Drive-Thru restaurant is the first of its kind for the Leon brand, and the fourth Leon restaurant to open in West Yorkshire. 

The 50+ cover restaurant, which is set to open in Autumn 2021, is also the first new opening for the brand since its sale to EG Group in April 2021.

The new site will create 30 new jobs for the area with the group beginning a recruitment drive to hire positions in both kitchen and management. The eco-friendly restaurant will be supplied with power from a “100% renewable energy source”. 

It will also feature solar panels on the roof which will contribute to further reducing energy consumption and, post-launch, it is planning to install a wind turbine that will generate more sustainable power. 

Nick Ayerst, managing director for Leon, said: “This is a significant milestone for Leon. We’ve been discussing the first Leon Drive-Thru with EG Group for five years now, and we’re excited to open in West Yorkshire later this year. 

“We have three other Leons in the surrounding area and we’ve received such a warm welcome from locals, who tell us they love our naturally fast food. We receive lots of emails and tweets every week asking us to open even more restaurants in the north, and we hope this opening signifies that there are many more to come.”
