An award-winning Wimpy restaurant has re-opened its doors after spending thousands of pounds on refurbishing the business.

The 61-seater restaurant in Station Road, Upminster, which won the title of Wimpy of the Year back in 2012, has welcomed back its loyal customers after a much-needed makeover with bright new colours, furnishings and uniforms.

Over the course of the next 18 months, Wimpy UK’s refurbishment programme will be rolled out to all of the restaurants.

Franchisee Berkant Okatan, who has been involved in the restaurant for the past 10 years, said: “Wimpy Upminster is now back on the map.

“There has been a Wimpy on this spot in Station Road for over 50 years, so many of our customers have grown up visiting Wimpy and now they are coming here with their children.

“The feedback has already been brilliant and our goal is for them to be as thrilled with the new look as we are.”
