La-la-la LEON! New West End branch features singing staff
Healthy fast food with an extra helping of performance and fun!
Would you like a side order of sing-song with that? Everyone’s favourite healthy fast-food chain, LEON has recently opened a branch on Shaftesbury Avenue, at which the staff serenades its customers whilst they buy their food.
Conceived as a platform for aspiring West End hopefuls to showcase their vocal talents, the new eatery opposite Les Miserables at the Queen’s Theatre will see its team members take it in turns to perform show tunes on their sound system throughout the day. There’s no fear of cringey X Factor-esque warblers here mind, each of LEON’s newly recruited staff were handpicked through a series of auditions. Judges included Call The Midwife star Helen George, comedian and actor Alexander Armstrong, plus LEON co-founder John Vincent.
“This brand new LEON is in the heart of the West End, and we want to provide a stage for West End hopefuls.” Vincent told The Evening Standard. “You’ll see the team members preparing and serving naturally fast food and then taking the mic to sing a show tune. We want to help our new stars to get noticed and follow their dreams. Perhaps our guests will be served by tomorrow’s Miss Adelaide or Jean Valjean.”
If you’re a die-hard musical fan, then make LEON Shaftesbury Avenue your new go-to dining destination for a meal on the go, with some all-singing all-dancing pizzazz. And if you’re a West End or NHS worker you’ll get a 15% discount too – huzzah!
