Brothers poised to offer a taste of Greece at their fourth venue

Greek food business, ThatZiki, is launching a new permanent residency at Trinity Kitchen, Leeds.

Due to open at the end of July, ThatZiki will bring its Greek gyros across the Pennines, taking over the former Absurd Bird unit at Trinity Leeds, creating 25 jobs.

Run by brothers Jack and Luke Newton, ThatZiki launched in 2022 after the pair saved up to buy a food truck, and now has three sites in Chorlton, Salford Quays and Warrington, with a previous stint running a delivery kitchen in Leeds.

ThatZiki will serve up gyros with a range of fillings, from 24-hour marinaded chicken and pork to grilled halloumi plus a vegan option, which are also available in a box, and topped with a choice of house sauce, tzatziki, or sriracha chilli or mayo. Sides include loaded fries, feta fries, pita and hummus.

Jack Newton said: “We’re so proud of what we’ve achieved in just a couple of years – from saving up for the food truck to now launching our fourth venue, we couldn’t be happier.

“We wouldn’t be here without the support of our amazing, loyal customers, and our friends and family. Their positive feedback and encouragement has meant the world.

““It’s a big step opening in such a major shopping centre in the heart of Leeds, working alongside big names but it’s all part of our plan to become the biggest and best Greek food business.

“We can’t wait to bring ThatZiki to Leeds and give even more people the chance to try our food.”

Josie Towning, food and beverage manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “We’ve been waiting for something special to join our incredible line-up at Trinity Kitchen, and ThatZiki is the perfect fit.

“The team is so passionate about what they do and their incredible food already has quite the following, so we can’t wait for people in Leeds to enjoy it too.”
