A new Five Guys is opening near Coventry

Just a 15-minute drive or 10-minutes by train, this will be the closest Five Guys restaurant to Coventry.

American burger brand Five Guys, famed for its burgers, hot dogs, fries and milkshakes, is to open a new restaurant near Coventry.

The restaurant will be located at Resorts World Birmingham and is due to open in late Autumn 2019.

Founded in Virginia in 1986 and launched into the UK in 2013 in London’s Covent Garden, the restaurant brand has amassed a loyal fanbase – with superstar fans including Ed Sheeran, Adele and former US President Barack Obama.

The new restaurant will be the 98th for the brand in the UK and will be situated on the ground floor of Resorts World, offering customers fully customisable burgers and the option to choose from as many of the 15 fresh toppings as they want.

The new Five Guys will be just a 15-minute drive from Coventry, or 10-minutes by train, making it the closest Five Guys restaurant to Coventry, beating the next closest by more double the time it takes.

Five Guys prides itself on using high quality, fresh produce all prepared and cooked to order. There are no freezers or microwaves in any Five Guys restaurants.

Guests will be able to enjoy the 250,000 possible burger order combinations as well as over 1,000 possible ways to customise a milkshake at the new site.

Five Guys will be the latest addition to Resorts World’s established range of big-name restaurants, including Zizzi, Miller & Carter, also new in late 2018, Nando’s and Las Iguanas.

The new restaurant is also hiring. Visit jobs.fiveguys.co.uk for more.
