THE largest expanding falafel restaurant group in the world, Just Falafel, arrived in Croydon at the weekend, offering locals an exciting new range of fresh, delicious and highly nutritious falafel wraps, soups, salads, sides, dips and drinks. And the opening also marked the start of an exciting new partnership between Just Falafel Croydon and Croydon Juniors Football Club, as the branch has announced they will sponsor the club's first team and provide brand new kits for the new season, and complimentary falafel-based meals. The brand new 1,000 square-foot restaurant located at Norfolk House on Wellesley Road, opened its doors on Saturday and created more than 50 new job opportunities for the local community, as part of a four-year plan to open four outlets in the Croydon area. Croydon Juniors FC, based at Croydon Sports Arena in South Norwood, was set up 25 years ago by Croydon locals Sally and James Maher, and it has been going from strength to strength ever since, encouraging boys and girls to get active and out on the pitch from a young age. And the first team won the 2012 Croydon Municipal League and reached the semi-finals in the local Surrey Cup. Just Falafel UK & Ireland CEO Michael Biggins, said: "We're also delighted to be supporting Croydon Juniors Football Club and look forward to seeing if the 'falafuel' energy boost will help to keep them on top this season. "This is the first restaurant we are opening outside of London and we are really excited to bring our healthy street food concept to a wider audience. And club chairman James Maher added: "We are so pleased Just Falafel Croydon approached us to become our official first team sponsor for the upcoming season. "The brand new football kits and free falafel will certainly give the team a fantastic boost. "It's always great to see local businesses supporting young people playing sport in the local community and helping them to keep fit, healthy and active." To celebrate its first Croydon restaurant opening, the restaurant will be hosting a 'Fala-Football Challenge' today from 12.30pm, where Croydon locals can put their table football skills to the test and have a chance to win a free lunch. The challenge will let Croydon Juniors Football Club put their skills to the test against local falafel-lovers, and give locals a chance to showcase their table-football talents in return for a delicious and nutritious reward.
