LEON's Bringing Healthy Fast Food To The Trafford Centre And The Menu Looks Delicious
Anyone thinking about their waistline might be avoiding eating out, but a new name's coming to Manchester that will change all that.
LEON has been known for its naturally healthy fast food in London for more than a decade.
And now the hip brand has confirmed that it's set to open in Manchester in the spring.
The restaurant will have room for almost 70 guests - creating between 25 and 30 jobs in the area - and will be located at the Debenham’s end of the Trafford Centre, not in the food court.
Launched in London in 2004, the brand serves a Mediterranean-style menu that tastes good and - best of all - does you good, without compromising on flavour.
The Manchester LEON menu will give guests the opportunity to try dishes that have been on the menu since their first store opened 13 years ago.
The brand, which has five cookbooks out for fans to recreate some favourites in their own kitchens at home, says it's committed to helping people eat great food without the guilt.
The store blog explains: "At LEON, we always want to make it easy for everyone to feel free. Free to let food delight and invigorate, and leave you free to enjoy eating.
"Since we opened our first restaurant we have wanted to prove that even if you choose to avoid certain ingredients, or if you have no choice but to avoid them, your food can still be full of flavour, and make you full of joy."
Dishes which have proven a hit include super clean quinoa salads, Moroccan meatballs, chicken noodle soup and more.
The restaurant group has 38 branches, situated mostly in and around London.
Last October, they announced plans to open 50 more around the country after securing a £19m funding deal.
