TGI Fridays has announced the reopening of a further 12 of its UK sites for click and collect and delivery services amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
From next week (27 May), the restaurant will be reopening its Aberdeen Beach, Bolton, Braintree, Coventry, Cribbs Causeway, Doncaster, Fareham, Romford sites, alongside Glasgow’s Buchanan Street and Manchester Piccadilly, for delivery only.
Its Milton Keynes Stadium and Speke sites will also repen for click and collect only.
On the same day, TGI Fridays announced alcohol will be added to the click and collect offer at selected locations.
The news comes as earlier this month TGI launched its click and collect service amid the Covid-19 crisis.
TGI Friday announced the temporary closure of all its UK restaurants on 21 March, following government regulations warning the public to practice social distancing to prevent the virus spreading.
The group created a “specially tailored” menu consisting of 22 dishes, covering a range of appetisers, mains, desserts and kids’ options will be available to click and collect from the 24 selected restaurants.
Robert B. Cook, CEO at TGI Fridays, said: “We’re so happy to be extending both our Click and Collect and delivery services to an incredible 36 locations as well as adding alcohol to the Click and Collect offer at selected locations.
“Since launch, we have had endless requests from Fridays fans across the country to bring the offer to them – something that we’ve been working very hard to safely deliver. The 12 restaurants that we are adding have been chosen as we either own and can control the car park or our landlord has given us dedicated access to the site.”
He added: “We are continuing to follow all Government guidelines to ensure social distancing measures are adhered to, with the safety of our guests and our teams remaining our top priority.”
