Today (1 April), the Free Press learnt that the former Burger King space, which closed for good in early 2020, will be taken on by a new and lesser-known restaurant firm.

The Sticky Sisters, who have three existing locations in Leeds, Farnborough, and Harlow, have signposted job recruitment posters around the exterior of the unit.

The recruitment posters placed on the door are for two food brands, El Taco Loco, which serves up Mexican street food, and Ruffled Feathers, serving wings, tenders, and burgers – these are in-house brands, which would cook up food for the menu.

How to apply for the vacancies

Those looking to apply for jobs at the new restaurant are being encouraged to do so by sending their CV to – alternatively, the firm also recommend people “pop in and give your CV to the restaurant manager.”

It looks like these aforementioned restaurant vacancies are in-house, inside the unit.

An idea of the food and drinks on offer

A Deliveroo presence has also been created in advance for the Hinckley branch, but as it is not yet open and trading, food can not be ordered.

But, the menu gives us a hint at the different dishes and soft drinks on offer.

A message posted to their Deliveroo page, simply reads: “We are passionate about chicken and sauce.

“Choose from our signature wings, tenders, burgers and wraps and pick your favourite sauce – we have loads to pick from!

“We have also got a bunch of awesome veggie and vegan options, sides, desserts, and drinks.”

They would serve up regular chicken wings, boneless chicken wings, vegan tenders, halloumi burgers, ‘the Sisters’ Veggie Burger’, nachos, mozzarella sticks, and wraps.

Also on the menu is sriracha sauce burgers, a ‘mango unchained’ burger, and their ‘too hot to handle’ burger, just to name a few of the offerings.

Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, and bottled still water are the only drinks on the menu.

Hinckley were left without a Burger King when they quietly ceased trading in March 2020.

The location was removed from official Burger King “Store Locator”, with a notice explaining how it was “temporarily closed” on the doors to the unit, along with staff uniforms, themed décor, and various items of seating being left behind.

Interestingly, The Sticky Sisters restaurant concept is owned by bosses at the Karali Group – the same firm who helped launch Burger King into Hinckley, and they still own multiple Burger King restaurant chains across the country.

Not The Crescent’s only new eatery

This is not the only new opening for The Crescent, as at the time of publication (1 April) Bikaneri, a restaurant that will serve up North Indian dishes are set to open in four days time, in the former Rossini’s restaurant, much to the delight of diners.
