Restaurant group TGI Fridays has launched the first of its new ‘fast track' restaurants in Manchester Piccadilly Station today.
The new restaurant, which aims to appeal to commuters and locals sits in the upper concourse of the station and is equipped with technology for commuters including power sockets, USB charging sockets, Wi-Fi and individual seating options.
It can cater to 135 diners at a time and has a rustic colour scheme and memorabilia inspired by travel, with a nod to New York's Grand Central station.
Jane Sadler, general manager for TGI Fridays Manchester Piccadilly said: "It's a great pleasure to be opening the first of Fridays' 'fast track' restaurants, and it couldn't be a more perfect location than in one of the busiest railway stations in the country. We're really looking forward to what is expected to be a busy opening period and can't wait for our guests to get a flavour for the fast track restaurant."
