Five Guys has announced when it will open its new Basildon restaurant.

The fast food chain will launch its new eatery at the Festival Leisure Park next Monday, July 11.

Signs have been put up in the window of the new restaurant displaying the opening date.

The American-style diner chain is relacing the former Villagio restaurant at the leisure park.

A refurbishment took place for a number of weeks.


The restaurant will be the first Five Guys to open in Basildon, with the only other south Essex site being at Lakeside Shopping Centre.

New jobs at Five Guys are being advertised online and a LinkedIn page for the restaurant at the leisure park has been set up.

Five Guys restaurants have opened at Lakeside Shopping Centre and in Chelmsford in recent years.
