Leon set to open first site after EG Group investment

Leon has today announced it is opening a 28-cover, 1,340 sq ft restaurant on the iconic Kings Road, London.

The restaurant is set to open in October, and will be Leon's first opening since the EG Group's investment in May 2021.

The restaurant will make a playful nod to its location, tailoring its exterior fascia colour to a royal blue in keeping with the area's look and feel; some of the interior decoration will also reflect this. The infamous Chelsea in Bloom is also celebrated across the Leon hoarding with a floral design.

Glenn Edwards, Managing Director said, 'We are excited to be opening our first Leon on the King's Road, a vibrant neighbourhood which appeals to locals and tourists alike. It's a privilege to open anywhere people gather and have a passion for food that tastes good and does you good.

'We've had our eye on this location pre the pandemic, so to be able to make it happen with the support from EG Group is fantastic.'

Plant-based dish innovations and exclusive new menu developments and collaborations will also be unveiled at the Kings Road restaurant. Guests will also find all the usual Leon favourites such as Carbon Neutral Burgers, Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets, Grilled Wraps, breakfast and lunchtime meal deals.

To enable a streamlined experience and improve customer service, this restaurant will be digital-first with new kiosks for digital ordering and payments. Leon sees digital as an enabler for their team to deliver the Leon experience every time, freeing up team members to help guests with a smile and elevated level of service.

The first of many new openings, including its recently announced Drive-Thru in Gildersome, Leeds – as Leon continues with its mission to bring Naturally Fast Food to as many people as possible. A recruitment drive is in progress across all positions from the back to front of house at its Kings Road and Drive-Thru restaurants.
