As much as we have fun here at Friday’s, we take our responsibilities very seriously. From cycling from London to Paris to raise money for our charity partners, to installing energy efficient hand dryers in our restrooms, we are committed to doing what we can for others in our community and the environment.
The Make-a-Wish Foundation is one of our charity partners. From VIP family days and fundraising events, to the donation of 15% of profits from sales of main courses on our kids’ menu, we are proud to support Make-a-Wish in granting magical and memorable experiences to children and young people with life threatening illnesses. Charity Registration Numbers. (England & Wales) 295672 (Scotland) SC037479.
We also work with other charities, including Oxfam – who receive all of our old tableware such as cutlery and glasses – and community food network FareShare, who benefit from our redundant food stock.
Friday’s strives to treat the environment with the same respect we show our guests. We use converted cooking oil in all of our delivery trucks, have installed smart meters to track and measure our energy usage, and from September we’ll be using certified ‘green electricity’ in all of our restaurants. Friday’s is also already 88% ‘No Landfill’, and by the end of 2012 – we will be 100%!
