A well-known American restaurant chain has opened up a location in the capital city.
A new 24-hour Denny’s is operating on Kenmount Road by the Sandman Hotel.
Spokesperson Megan Gardiner says the team behind the restaurant is excited to arrive in this province. She says Denny’s is looking forward to being active members of the community in St. John’s.
The franchise boasts over 1,700 locations in operation around the world, but this is first of its kind in Newfoundland and Labrador and the only Denny’s in Atlantic Canada.
While it offers a diner-style menu, the chain is well known for its breakfasts.
Denny’s eyeing up Edinburgh location for new restaurant
POPULAR American diner chain is eyeing up the Capital as it pushes ahead with plans to open restaurants in the UK. US giant Denny’s teased hungry fans on Twitter, posting a picture of the former Ed’s Easy Diner premises at Fort Kinnaird. Ed’s closed in 2016.
The company’s official Twitter account then called on people to flood Fort Kinnaird with messages.
It said: “Well done to those who guessed right, it is indeed Edinburgh! “Guys if you would like us here make sure you tweet Fort Kinnaird and let them know! In the meantime, the location hunt does continue.”
The company also posted pictures of locations at Glasgow Fort and the Trafford Centre in Manchester. Denny’s opened it’s first UK outlet in Swansea and is set to expand its operation in the UK.
The restaurants serve traditional American-style food such as burgers – but are famous for its breakfasts including pancakes, waffles and ‘slams’.
