A ‘biggie’ jobs boost as American-style diner opens in Shrewsbury
An American-style eatery which has opened in the heart of Shrewsbury has created 30 jobs.
Biggies Diner, in Frankwell, serves up a gourmet feast of traditional US favourites while it also features seven boutique hotel rooms and an upmarket sports bar.
Biggies is the vision of owners Ryan King, Sophie Gwilliam and Sam Taylor.
Ryan and Sophie had been seeking a new challenge since selling the hugely popular Smoke Stop. The Road to BBQ at Ford while Sam already owns established Shrewsbury venues The Libertine Cocktail Bar and House of the Rising Sun.
They have pooled their creative and culinary talents to produce something new and exciting for Shrewsbury.
“We have a specialist knowledge of cocktails while we also have a special milkshake menu, sodas which have been shipped over from America and popcorn machines which children love. It really is a unique taste of America in the heart of Shrewsbury.
“We think the combination of delicious food, cocktails, an upmarket sports bar with six TV screens – and seven stylish boutique hotel rooms with lovely big bathrooms is a great mix.”
Early feedback from customers has been phenomenal.
Luna added: “We’ve been made to feel very welcome by the Frankwell community, particularly the other bars in the area as we can help bring more people to this part of town.
“We all support each other and when people come to Biggies, they may go to the other bars and restaurants nearby. It’s all very exciting.”
