TGI Friday’s restaurant chain to add 250 jobs in a bid to improve service

TGI Friday’s is planning a recruitment campaign in a bid to improve customer service levels.

The American restaurant chain is looking to hire about 250 new staff following its £74.1m sale from Whitbread to Carlson Restaurants Worldwide and ABN AMRO Capital in January.

The company will target staff at other hospitality businesses, as well as new entrants to the sector, according to Ricky Richardson, interim managing director of TGI.

“We’re very confident about TGI’s future in the UK based on our success with the brand in the US,” he told Personnel Today’s sister magazine Caterer and Hotelkeeper.

TGI Friday’s has 45 restaurants in the UK – the first opened in 1985.
