• We're excited to announce that we have partnered with naturally fast food chain LEON, with our first roadside LEONs due to open this summer andmany more planned to open over the next five years.

     

    We've picked two of our flagship sites, at Norton Canes on the M6 toll and Strensham South on the M5 to house the two new restaurants, which are due to open in early August. This deal will give millions of our customers the opportunity to try popular dishes that have been on the menu since LEONs first store opened in 2004, such as its Moroccan Meatball Hotbox, signature Fish Finger Wrap and the Original Super Salad.

    The range will be complemented with newer dishes, all of which follow the LEON principles that food should taste good, do you good and be affordable. This landmark agreement is part of our drive to offer the UK’s travelling public a wider choice that mirrors the diversity found on the high street.

    “We strive to offer our customers a range of different food options to refuel while travelling that will refresh, revive and reinvigorate them so they can continue on their journeys safely,” said Simon Turl, our CEO at Roadchef.

    “We scoured the market for a brand that would complement our existing offering and LEON, with its impressive naturally fast food credentials, stood out. We are thrilled that LEON have chosen Roadchef as the partner to introduce their brand to the motorway network, our two companies share a people focused culture and we are confident that our customers will be impressed with what LEON have to offer.”

    LEON Managing Director John Upton added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Roadchef and taking LEON onto the motorways of Britain. At LEON we want to help everyone eat well and live well. We have always said we want LEON to be where it was most needed – either on the high street or easy to find when you’re out and about. This new partnership with Roadchef will help us provide fun, fast, fresh LEON food to the millions of people who use our motorways every day.”

    Our new LEON restaurants will see nearly 60 jobs being created and will contribute towards Highways England and the Department of Transport’s initiative to encourage MSA operators to focus on the wellbeing of motorway users in the UK.
