A POPULAR burger joint has decided to reopen its branch in the town.

Five Guys in Braintree have reopened and are offering delivery and click and collect to customers, in line with the Government's current guidelines on takeaway.

The full menu is said to be on offer as the national burger chain reopens outlets across the UK.

The Braintree outlet, which is based the Braintree Shopping Village in Charter Way, is the latest of numerous branches to reopen.

The chain are adamant that safety is of top priority, with measures in place to keep customers safe.

For those customers ordering via click and collect, they will be prompted to pay for their order prior to visiting their local store, where social distancing measures are in place to ensure their safety and that of the crews.

John Eckbert CEO of Five Guys UK said, “We have adopted a phased approach to reopening Five Guys stores, adhering to government advice and ensuring the safety of our customers and crew is paramount.

"To date a small number of stores have remained open for Click and Collect and Deliveroo orders only and while this has been in operation, we’re proud of how our crew members have supported local hospitals and key frontline workers across the UK.”

Branches in Colchester and Chelmsford have also reopened.

The Braintree branch will be open from Wednesday 27 May and will be open from midday until 8pm from Wednesday to Sunday.

Customers can place orders on the Five Guys app or by going to their website.
