Having announced ambitions of expanding into new channels, the new owners of fast-food chain Leon have revealed plans for the brand's first Drive Thru, coming to West Yorkshire this autumn.
The Issa brothers, founders of petrol station group EG Group, completed the purchase of Leon in April this year and vowed to continue expanding its footprint across new formats. It may therefore come as little surprise that their newest announcement comes as a drive thru concept for consumers.
In a statement, the Issa brothers said: "This is the first of many new, strategic openings for the Leon brand under EG ownership. Opening a Leon drive-thru concept is a landmark moment for the brand, creating a fantastic opportunity to bring Leon's naturally fast food to even more people.
"Our investment in Leon, together with our unparalleled operational experience of drive-thrus and access to high-quality roadside locations through our forecourts, creates new opportunities for the company and a strong platform to deliver significant growth."
In a non to their sustainability focus the new venue will also include bike racks and will encourage cycle-thru guests too. It's also expected that product innovations and exclusive menu developments will also be unveiled at the new site , including it being a digital-first restaurant with kiosks for digital ordering and payments.
