Fast food brand LEON opened at its new site in Harrogate today (Thursday).

LEON offers nutritious meals on the go and opened its first site in Leeds last year.

And to celebrate their Harrogate opening today, the restaurant has been offering free tea and cake, with customers queuing out of the door.

Glenn Edwards, LEON 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.”
