TGI Fridays has announced the reopening of 66 of its UK restaurants on 6 July.
The company said it will also reveal a “fresh new brand” which will be showcased at six specially selected restaurants, dubbed ‘Famous at Fridays’, with elements introduced across the rest of the estate.
These new changes will be introduced at six specially selected restaurants around the UK, chosen for their geographical spread, iconic bars and city centre locations.
The ‘Famous at Fridays’ restaurants include Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Birmingham Hagley Road (the first Fridays in the UK launched in 1986), Nottingham, Manchester Royal Exchange and Glasgow Buchanan Street.
Robert Cook, CEO, said: “It feels great to be able to welcome our guests back into our restaurants from Monday 6 July and be able to give them that memorable Friday’s experience.
“Our new ‘Famous at Fridays’ restaurants take us back to what we are famous for. We have invested in the return of classic dishes made with quality ingredients, re-energised bars full of energy and theatre, all of which will be complemented by consistently brilliant and iconic Fridays service and spirit of generosity.”
He added: “We can’t wait to safely welcome our guests back through our doors.”
On 21 March , the American-style diner announced the temporary closure of all its UK restaurants due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.The closure followed the government warning the public to practice social distancing to prevent the virus spreading.
