UK CEO John Eckbert said: “We have adopted a phased approach to reopening Five Guys stores, adhering to government advice and ensuring the safety of our customers and crew is paramount.
“To date a small number of stores have remained open for Click and Collect and Deliveroo orders only and while this has been in operation, we’ve been proud of how our crew members have supported local hospital workers and key frontline workers across the UK.”
Five Guys has 88 restaurants in the UK, and arrived from America in 2013.
