Fast food chain Leon has entered a lease agreement to open its second US location at 655 New York Avenue in 2019.
The restaurant first entered the US market in June this year with the opening of a store in Washington D.C.
The second store will be located in a 768,000ft2 building established by Douglas Development in a joint venture (JV) with Brookfield Properties.
Leon’s managing director Glenn Edwards said: “Since our successful opening of Leon on L Street earlier this year, we have been searching for our next great location in Washington D.C. and are thrilled to have found it in Mount Vernon Triangle.
“We’re excited to expose the beauty of the original building as a second major milestone in bringing the future of fast food to Washington D.C.”
The restaurant chain offers a wide range of menu items, including a smoked salmon and avocado egg pot and a sausage and bacon muffin, as well as the Moroccan Meatball Hot Box, a truffled portobello and halloumi sandwich, and a Lebanese mezze salad.
Customers can purchase menu items for prices ranging between $4.95 and $9.95. The restaurant serves breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.
Leon also offers a $5.50 breakfast meal deal, which includes a breakfast dish and a regular coffee.
Established in 2004, Leon currently operates 61 restaurants in locations such as Oslo, Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Gran Canaria. The company plans to expand its presence to other cities across Europe and the US.
