Good news at West Country business park

Westpark 26 business park at Chelston, Wellington – developed by Summerfield – is to welcome a new 140 seater restaurant and drive-thru McDonald’s.

Working with Devon Contractors, Summerfield are currently on site to deliver the new building for McDonald’s.  Construction works are due to be practically completed by Q1, 2021, with McDonalds planning to open early in 2021. The new restaurant will create 65 new full time and part time jobs (45 full time equivalent positions) in a time when hundreds of new homes are being developed around Wellington and when new opportunities for employment are scarce.

‘We are excited to be part of this development and look forward to the new jobs our restaurant will create, and the investment it will bring to the local area.’, commented a McDonald’s spokesperson.

 McDonald’s will join a Costa Coffee drive thru along with The Skylark Pub, a Subway and a Budgens convenience store as part of the petrol filling station.

“McDonald’s will add to the existing amenities on site at Westpark, offering the resident and local businesses an excellent working environment and amenities”, commented Ben Trickey, Summerfield’s Commercial Director.

Summerfield are now working up plans for a further terrace of Trade Counter and industrial warehouse units – and terms have been agreed with the first occupier.  All enquiries to Summerfield’s agents Alder King or JLL – or direct to Summerfield.
