Greenwich

Nandos to close in Greenwich and be replaced with 24 hour Burger King?

Update: Many people have pointed out that the former Prezzo unit is empty and a more likely candidate. I agree yet planning documents show it on the Nandos site and location history also links to Nandos (see bottom of pic below). All a bit odd. Will try to find out more.

Original story:

Is it out with the Peri Peri and in with the Whopper? A plan has been submitted to open a Burger King 24 hours a day at Greenwich Millennium Leisure Park beside the Odeon just down from the new Ikea which opens in less than a month on 7th February.



Looking at the planned site location document does appear to show it on the site of Nandos.

*super boring fact alert*

I had my first ever whopper in the old Greenwich Burger King which was located where the DLR station was later built near the Cutty Sark. It had a green frontage and closed in the late 90s I think? I’ve loved Whopper burgers ever since. *drools*

Will there be much demand for a 24 hour Burger King I wonder? The adjacent cinema tends to stay open until 1-2am and there’s shift workers etc.

Personally I’m all for it. For a major world city way too many things in London close early and the more options the better.

    Might be worth it for BK to be able to provide 24hr Deliveroo/Uber Eats as well. 24hr-delivered McDonalds has been useful on some night shifts!

    Oh dear, from the planning application letter…

    Nandos is due to vacate Unit 4 at Millennium Leisure Park imminently. This application seeks approval for the unit to trade on a 24-hour basis, to meet the requirements of the incoming tenant, Burger King.

    I’m in favour of anything that brings a little more life into the area after 7pm though BK is a mixed blessed. It’s certainly tasty enough and for a filling meal quite affordable. Hopefully it will take advantage of the cinema trade and learn from the mistakes McDonald’s made when they were in that complex (ie:not leaving it stuffed with trainees and cooking food only after the big screenings finished rather than having it ready for hamburger-hungry customers)
