It created at least 15 new jobs and the owner says he has been overwhelmed with support from local residents.
“In the run-up to the opening I’ve had so many people coming in and telling me tales of how much they loved coming to Wimpy with their friends, some of them had their birthday parties with us, some met their girlfriends and boyfriends here, which is wonderful,” he said.
“I hope that bringing Wimpy back to Shrewsbury will give everyone a chance to rekindle those memories and also make new ones as new generations of local families come and join us.”
Wimpy UK’s general manager, Chris Woolfenden, who joined Ali and his team for the grand opening on the 5th of April, said, “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Ali to the Wimpy family. With his experience in the restaurant trade he brings many skills to our team and we look forward to working with him.
“We’re also absolutely thrilled to be back in Shrewsbury, we know we have many loyal customers here and while many things have changed in the time we’ve been away, we can still guarantee great food, great service and terrific value for money.”
The 100-seater restaurant features Wimpy UK’s new Shift Design, which builds on the brand’s heritage and traditions, while also featuring bright new colours, furnishings, and uniforms.
It also offers table service culture, with food served on china plates with ‘real’ cutlery and drinks in china cups.
The new restaurant will be open seven days a week, including 8:30 am-5pm on Sundays.
