A NEW food venue serving up pizza, smashed burgers and loaded fries is set to open in place of a closed-down burger hut in Reading.

The food shack in Cemetery Junction has been the home of many different small food businesses in the past. It was recently the home of Smash N Grab burger takeaway, which received a 4.8/5 review score on Google before closing down in January.

Prior to Smash N Grab closing earlier this year, the food hut was run as The Hungry Hut, Gourmet Wraps, Seasons Caribbean takeaway and The Coffee Cabin.

Now the hut is set to be reopened by food businesswoman Shaheera Konoth, who will be opening the space later this month.

The renaming of the hut has already occurred ready for it to be reopened, with it now being called ‘Cozzy Bites’. Explaining the concept for the food hut, Mrs Konoth said: “We are doing pizza, smashed burgers and loaded fries.”

While Cozzy Bites hasn’t opened yet, its website states that it will be a ‘neighbourhood destination for quick, delicious, and satisfying fast food takeaway’.

Mrs Konoth is hoping to open on Saturday, April 20.

Those looking to fulfil their cravings would do well to get in there early, as Cozzy Bites will run an opening promotion. Mrs Konoth said: “We are giving a 40 per cent discount to customers between April 20 and April 25.”

She also runs the Cozzy Lounge in Wantage which specialises in desserts, snacks and light bites.
