A new Wimpy restaurant has opened in High Wycombe.
The new restaurant opened on Monday 23rd November 2020 at 19-21 White Hart Street, close to the Eden Shopping Centre.
Due to the current lockdown restrictions the restaurant is serving only takeaways and home delivery orders via Just Eat and Deliveroo. However as soon as restrictions are lifted the team behind the restaurant, which has table service seating for up to 44 diners, say they are looking forward to welcoming diners through their doors.
Wimpy High Wycombe is the brainchild of a consortium of four franchisees, who together have several decades of experience of running Wimpy restaurants.
Joint franchisee, Altan Ogretici, who has been involved in Wimpy for more than 20 years and who also runs Wimpys at Ruislip, Ashford and Cheshunt, said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have brought Wimpy back to High Wycombe, we know there are plenty of Wimpy fans in the town and we can’t wait to show off our new look and our fabulous, good value food.
Our new restaurant is in an excellent town centre location, close to the Eden Shopping Centre and when regulations allow, it makes the perfect place to stop off for a freshly-cooked meal after a trip round the shops or to pop in and meet friends. In the meantime, we’re looking forward to serving Wimpy fans via takeaway and home delivery.‘
Leading the new High Wycombe team will be Ahmet Sevinc, former franchisee at Wimpy Rayleigh and Wimpy Bicester. The other franchisees are Yujel Mehmed, who is also a joint franchisee at Wimpy Cheshunt with Altan, and Asrarjon Abdullaev.
The interior of the £200,000 restaurant shows off Wimpy UK’s latest SHIFT design, building on the brand’s strong heritage and much loved traditions and featuring bright new colours, bench style seating and Wimpy artwork on the walls.
Social distancing measures, including hand sanitisers and screens have been put in place and QR codes will be available on tables for diners to scan in their orders.
Chris Woolfenden, Wimpy UK general manager, said: ‘We know that Wimpy has been much missed in High Wycombe and are delighted that with all their combined experience, Altan and his fellow franchisees have been successful in bringing it back to the town. We wish them every luck in the future.‘
The previous Wimpy restaurant in High Wycombe closed in January 2009.
