An exact opening date has now been set for the opening of a burrito chain’s third Kent restaurant. Plan Burrito is set to launch its first Medway branch this month, with a new store in Gillingham High Street.

Bosses have confirmed that the restaurant will officially open its doors to hungry customers on Monday, April 22. This follows the arrival of Plan Burrito restaurants in Canterbury and Thanet last year.

Customers will be able to tuck into a range of Tex-Mex dishes, including quesadillas, tacos, churros, nachos and, of course, burritos. The new store will be found at 146 High Street and promises “something for everyone”.
