TGI Friday's to open six new sites in 2013

Casual dining chain TGI Friday's is set to open six new restaurants in 2013.

The firm said the new openings, the first of which will be in Leeds Trinity on 21 March and Glasgow Fort on 21 August, would create 600 jobs and 25 new management positions.

The locations for the other four openings have yet to be revealed.

David Carroll, TGI Friday's UK director of acquisitions and development said: "2013 is on track to be one of our biggest years in the UK since Friday's opened 27 years ago. Not only do we have six exciting new openings, we're also focusing heavily on our CSR initiatives and continually supporting team-members pursue pursuits outside of work through our Friday's Family Foundation.

"One of our main challenges this year will be sourcing passionate and enthusiastic team members for the new openings. With roles varying from bartenders and managers, through to chefs and shift leaders, we're keen to hear from those that would like to start or progress their career with us. If anyone is keen to be part of our thriving Friday's family we'd urge them to get in-touch through"
