10 new Leon sites to open this year

EG Group-owned Leon is planning to open 10 new outlets by the end of this year, including its first drive-through in West Yorkshire this autumn.

The brand's petrol station giant owner, which acquired Leon in April, said the healthy fast-casual dining chain has performed well during its latest financial quarter.

Leon, which currently operates over 70 sites, will open around 20 new outlets a year from 2022, including multiple drive-through locations.

EG Group co-founders Zuber and Mohsin Issa stated, 'The resilience of our business model has been demonstrated during the pandemic, and we have emerged as an even stronger business as we enter the second half of the year with confidence.'
