LEON to open new drive-thru in Harrogate on Friday – Retail Times


Naturally Fast Food brand LEON today announces it is opening a new site in Harrogate on 1st July.

To celebrate, they will be offering a free tea and LEON cake bar all day, all week, as well as bounceback vouchers and offers. The LEON Club app, which allows guests to seamlessly pre-order and collect, offers subscribers even more treats and discounts. 

The Harrogate restaurant is and will be a drive thru style restaurant where guests are invited to grab a nutritious meal while on the go. This opening is an exciting development for LEON as they expand their presence in the North of England.

The new Harrogate opening is the second drive-thru  restaurant LEON has opened. They opened a drive-thru in Gildersome, Leeds in late 2021. The Harrogate restaurant has created 20 jobs and will feature digital kiosks which LEON have rolled out in many restaurants. Heading up the team of 20 will be Alex Parkinson, a Harrogate local who was originally hired by LEON as the assistant general manager at LEON’s Gildersome drive-thru. She was quickly promoted to general manager and is now leading the Harrogate opening. 

The restaurant features generous seating both inside and out. The seating will provide a comfortable respite for travellers taking a break from the roads and the space will be filled with natural light.

Glenn Edwards, managing director, said: “Since opening our first drive-thru restaurant last year, we have been eager to grow this style of restaurant in order to  bring LEON to more guests and allow them to experience LEON while on the go – something that aligns with our mission to bring naturally fast food that tastes good, does you good and is kind to the planet. Our opening in Harrogate is a massive achievement across all fronts.”

Guests will find the usual LEON favourites such as Carbon Neutral Burgers, Grilled Wraps, delicious breakfast and all-day options, as well the full LEON summer menu, including Vegan Moroccan Me*tballs and Keralan Chicken Curry Rice Box. Also available will be refreshing Karma Drink Sodas.

Alongside recent new store openings in Tongham, Surrey, Bluewater, Kent and Kings Rd, London, 2022 is proving a busy and exciting time for LEON. EG ownership of LEON has allowed a continuous pipeline of traditional highstreet openings such as the Bluewater and Kings Rd as well as, in locations including Camden and Kingston, it has also allowed for new formats such as the counter-style and digital screens, and the Drive-Thru order systems. All openings will contribute to LEON’s goal of having a total of 100 locations by the end of 2022.
