The new look restaurant has a new interior and USB charging points.

Its menu will feature on JustEat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo.

Franchisees Nico and Florenc Sokoli, who also run a Wimpy in Welling, were on hand to welcome diners.

Nico said: "We’re thrilled to be opening our new look Wimpy and we think customers are going to love all the hard work we’ve put into it.

"It’s bright, fun and friendly and, above all, we’ll be serving fabulous food with all the traditional Wimpy dishes that we know the people of Strood will enjoy.

“We’re extremely fortunate because the High Street area around us has been re-energised with a makeover of its own and we’re delighted to be part of the town’s reinvention.

"We can’t wait to welcome people through our doors.”

Simon Noble, Wimpy UK’s operations manager, said: “The whole Wimpy team is delighted to see Wimpy Strood open again.

"Nico and his brother Florenc have done a terrific job and I have no doubt that their experience and knowledge of the business through their work at Wimpy Welling will help make a real success story of their latest venture.”
