TGI Fridays opens 73rd restaurant in Walsall today

TGI Friday’s is opening its 73rd restaurant in the Waterfront centre in Walsall today, which is the first outlet in the Black County for the American diner-style chain.

The TGI Friday's eatery has taken the final unit and forms part of the £12m Walsall Waterfront complex in the town centre.

Chiquitos, Hungry Horse, Pizza Express and Bella Italia signed up for the development last year.

The new Walsall outlet joins the TGI Friday's other West Midlands' sites in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and Solihull.

The next opening for the company will be at Newcastle’s Metrocentre at the end of March, and will be its third site in the city
