Yard & Coop to create 30 jobs in Leeds with new 120-cover chicken restaurant
Chicken restaurant Yard & Coop is expanding into Yorkshire with a new venue in Leeds.
The company has revealed plans to create 30 jobs with a 120-cover eatery in the city centre, occupying the former home of Miah’s Kitchen opposite Zaap Thai.
As with Yard & Coop’s other restaurants in Liverpool and Manchester, the Leeds site will source all its chicken from a farm in Shropshire.
Co-Founder and director Carl Morris said: “Leeds is an amazing city and were extremely excited to bring the Home of Buttermilk Fried Chicken to the people of Yorkshire.
“We’re all about booze, chicken, good times and we can’t wait to meet everyone.’’
Yard & Coop, founded by Carl and Laura Morris in 2015, started out in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
In December 2016 the company expanded with a second venue at the Liverpool ONE shopping and leisure complex.
