Leon co-founder and CEO John Vincent said: “I am so happy to be opening in Oslo; a wonderful city full of the most interesting and inspirational people. I can’t wait to see what people think of Leon and of naturally fast food.”

Leon managing director for UMOE Helene Skjenneberg said: “Launching Leon means that we get to bring the future of fast food to Norway. We have exciting times in front of us and look forward to offering Norwegians a whole new concept of fast food based on natural ingredients.”
