Speaking about the launch of Click & Collect, Robert B Cook, CEO at TGI Fridays said: “We can’t wait to re-fire the grills in preparation for the launch of our new Click & Collect service in 24 selected locations.

“These initial sites have been chosen as we either own and can control the car park or the landlord has given us dedicated access.

“We will also be restoring delivery services at the same locations via Just Eat and Deliveroo, as applicable.

“We will continue to monitor UK Government advice but after an initial trial we aim to extend the rollout as soon as it is safe to do so.”

TGI Fridays has said it plans on opening more restaurants “as soon as it is safe to do so”.

The restaurant chain closed all branches in March, following the Government instruction for all non-essential establishments should close due to coronavirus.

TGI Fridays has 87 restaurants in the UK.
