Leon closes pop-up at one site with plans for new location & menu

The 'naturally fast food' chain, Leon has closed its Asian pop-up concept, Tuk Shop on London's Shaftesbury Avenue, with the site returning to its Leon branding.

The company posted on Twitter: 'Our Thai Fast Food pop up, Tuk Shop, will be popping down for a bit and will close its doors on Sunday. It'll pop up again later in the year with a brand new menu and in a new Central London location.'

The new brand was launched on 30 April this year, with John Vincent, the Leon founder, claiming it would be a “second engine” of growth for his company.

Tuk Shop has been created through a partnership between Leon and Thai food group, Aylmer Aaharn, co-owned by Australian chef and Thai specialist, David Thompson.
