PFC Group, the Wok & Go operator, has opened the first site for its new Jack Burrito brand.

MCA first revealed plans for the concept – which offers a range of fillings served in either a burrito or a jacket potato – in February.

As reported at that time the first site is in Chester’s Northgate Street. It opened its doors yesterday, despite initially expecting to open in April.

A second Jack Burrito is already earmarked for Leeds city centre with a third site planned near Aston University in Birmingham.

On the menu are ‘lip-smacking flavour combinations’ from the ‘Ring O Fire’ featuring fiery hot pulled beef, jalapenos and avocado to ‘The Spaniard’ with chorizo, semi-dried tomato, three beans and smoky chipotle mayo.

Light bites start from £4.50, with main courses from £6.75 Guests can eat-in or takeaway.

Managing director Des Pheby said: “We’re excited to be opening our new restaurant on Northgate Street. Our menu is going to bring the classic jacket potato up to date and we can’t wait for guests to visit us and try it for themselves.

“Jack Burrito is just a few doors down from where we opened the first Wok & Go nearly 10 years ago. We’ve got big plans for this new concept and we’re hoping it will be just as popular as Wok & Go has proven to be.”
