The 180-capacity restaurant, their 86th in the UK, will create 80 jobs for the community.

David Carroll, property director for TGI Fridays UK, said: “We are so excited to be opening our doors here in Rushden Lakes as we’ve heard from local residents that there is a huge appetite for Fridays in the area.

“Not only will Fridays fans in Northamptonshire have a new location to try out the menu full of Fridays classics and new favourites, but we are also creating a host of new career opportunities for those looking to begin or progress their careers in the hospitality industry.

“Doors open on May 13 so come and say hi.”
