Major fast food chain Leon is set to move to Reading soon, with plans submitted to the council to set up on Broad Street, near The Oracle.

Leon has submitted an application for removal of existing signage at the 121-122 Broad Street premises and replace it with new signage.

The chain serves ‘naturally fast food’ and has dozens of branches across the UK, while the Reading branch will be the first in Berkshire.

Leon specialises in ‘healthy fast food’, with a breakfast menu included, and will be in the location formerly occupied by Thomas Cook.

Foodies can enjoy an array of salads, burgers, curries and more – with plenty of gluten free options.

The Oracle announced in March 2020 a Leon branch would be opening in Reading but it has taken more than a year to get plans in place amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Leon Property Director, Adam Blaker, said in March last year: “We’re delighted, at long last, to be coming to Reading.

“For several years we’ve had an increasing number of requests from customers to be there.

“We think the position of the site in Broad Street, so close to the entrance of The Oracle, is convenient for shoppers and office workers alike.

“We’re really excited and this is just the beginning of our plans in this wonderful city.”
