New Glasgow leisure complex signs TGI Friday's and Cosmo

The restaurants TGI Friday's and Cosmo will form part of a new £20m leisure extension of a Glasgow shopping centre, developers Hammerson have said.

From late autumn 2014, out-of-town shopping centre Silverburn will feature a 634m sq TGI Friday's with an open kitchen and bar, and a 922m sq Cosmo.

Cosmo serves an eclectic range of pan-Asian and Mediterranean style food via a range of cooking methods â€' such as teppanyaki, wood-fired oven and tandoor â€' and a buffet. It has 15 sites nationwide.

The new 100,000 sq ft leisure complex will also feature a 14-screen Cineworld cinema, and other restaurant brands such as Zizzi and Pizza Express.

Chris Daly, catering leasing executive at Hammerson, said: "These two signings are another key milestone in the creation of Silverburn's leisure extension. They will create a critical mass of offer that will establish Silverburn as the destination of choice for consumers in the catchment."

David Carroll, property director at T.G.I. Friday's UK, said: "Scotland is an important market for us and Silverburn's already strong retail and leisure offer makes it a great option."

Both restaurants are undergoing expansion, with Cosmo set to open four new sites, including in Liverpool, Nottingham and York.

TGI Friday's opened six new sites for last year; is planning eight more for 2014; and only last week announced it had bought Pesto Restaurant's Liverpool One site for a "seven-figure" sum.
