Delayed opening date for Lincoln TGI Fridays

A new date is yet to be decided

The opening date of TGI Fridays in Lincoln has been pushed back as the coronavirus lockdown continues to impact on businesses.

The popular American style chain was due to open a restaurant on the High Street unit formerly occupied by Carluccio’s on Thursday, January 14 this year.

The news of TGI Fridays’ Lincoln move caused a lot of excitement, but this has now been delayed.

A new exact launch date is still to be decided, with the possibility of more local coronavirus restrictions looming.

A spokesperson from Fridays said: “Following the government guidelines around local restrictions and with Lincoln now moving into tier four, we have taken the decision to postpone the launch for the short term.

“Despite the delay in opening, we remain incredibly excited to be bringing a new restaurant to the city of Lincoln as well as bringing new job opportunities to the area.

“We look forward to welcoming Fridays fans through our doors soon so they can experience that Fridays feeling whatever day of the week they visit.”
