Specifically aimed at Manchester's commuters

TGI's ‘Fast Track Fridays’ opens in Manchester Piccadilly

MANCHESTER Piccadilly Station has become the site of the first ‘fast track’ TGI Fridays, a format which aims to provide convenient food for commuters.

"It couldn’t be a more perfect location than in one of the busiest railway stations in the country"

The commuter demographic is evident in their generous provision of power sockets, USB charging sockets and WiFi. Individual seating will also be available so a commuter’s every desire has been catered for.

The Upper Concourse location has seating for 135 diners with a rustic colour scheme and local artwork. Bless.

As they enjoy their short wait, customers will be able to watch their food being cooked as a result of the open plan kitchen. All of the food on the menu has been chosen to meet the demands of commuters, allowing meals to be served quickly.

New to the menu is the classic American-inspired breakfast which includes waffles, maple bacon and Jack Daniel’s candied sausages.

Jane Sadler, General Manager for TGI Fridays Manchester Piccadilly said “It’s a great pleasure to be opening the first of Fridays’ ‘fast track’ restaurants, and it couldn’t be a more perfect location than in one of the busiest railway stations in the country. We’re really looking forward to what is expected to be a busy opening period and can’t wait for our guests to get a flavour for the fast track restaurant.”

www.tgifridays.co.uk/…/TGI7424_HubMenuComplete_AW_NC.pdf… Most expensive items are the breakfast and breakfast burger both at £9.99 Looks tempting if the quality is there.

There are more expensive items on that link and hot beverages are more than two quid from what I saw.

AvoAugust 20th 2014.

Sorry, I thought it was breakfast only. You're right, the main menu is more expensive.

TGI Fridays in a train station then?

OMG MORE THAN £2?!?!?!??!? Isn't it more than £2 for a coffee anywhere other than Greggs?

Which is why I don't buy them. Double that gets you a decent bottle of wine from a supermarket. Two quid indeed!

1) £4 may get you an average bottle of wine, possibly in some very rare instances an above average one (Aldi's red Spanish wine which is £3.80 is pretty nice). 2) What has wine got to do with coffee? And if you don't drink coffee outside of your house, why are you mentioning the price of it at a new restaurant in the train station?

...you don't buy coffee because it isn't cheaper than supermarket wine? That makes no sense. Everything is cheaper in a supermarket than a restaurant.

'What has wine got to do with coffee?' Ok, shall I compare that 'value' with a coffee made at home or one from a supermarket?

The beer in here is great: Blue Moon, Samuel Adams and Peroni on draft. Moosehead and Punk IPA in bottles. I reckon this will not only attract commuters.

This was the most overpriced disgusting meal I have ever had Do not go what a rip off have not stopped feeling sick full of grease served on metal trays must be too immature for plates absolutely disgusting!!!

How long before this outlet closes? It is almost always empty, the most I have ever seen is 3 or 4 tables occupied and maybe a few people at the bar. The other food & drink outlets at Piccadilly are always busier. It is a failing concept!

Unless you've missed your train, it's been delayed or you're waiting to be collected, who spends time in a station, let alone goes there for a meal?

Jason TennantSeptember 25th 2014.

Well "anonymous" I think you've just answered your own question with at least 3 categories of people who might! My point was as I pass through twice a day (morning & evening usually) and use the M&S next door the TGIs is always practically empty, whereas the other food outlets are busy.
