TGI Fridays to open at Highcross

Published:  11 March, 2015

TGI Fridays is to open its first restaurant in Leicester at Highcross shopping centre.

TGI Fridays will take a 6,600 sq ft unit, located opposite John Lewis. Serving its full range of American food and cocktails, the restaurant will become one of the key destinations in St Peters Square, the centre’s dedicated dining quarter, and is due to open in late spring.

Sarah Fox, head of restaurants and leisure at Hammerson, said: “TGI Fridays is a great addition to the centre’s already strong line-up of popular restaurants. At Highcross, to ensure the shopping experience for our customers continues to be the best it can be, we have successfully reinvigorated the catering offer available to meet demand and so TGI Fridays is a natural choice for St Peters Square.”

Previously only offering retail space, St Peters Square has undergone a period of transformation into a comprehensive dining area and is already home to brands including Byron, Carluccio’s and more recently Bill’s.
