Developed by Summerfield, the new McDonalds building has been pre-fabricated off site and delivered in six sections, was assembled on site with the Phase 2 works being completed on Monday 7 December 2020.
Working with Devon Contractors, McDonalds and Elliott, (who made the pre-fabricated building), Summerfield have completed the Phase 2 works, allowing McDonalds to open the restaurant and Drive-thru on Wednesday 9 December 2020.
The opening will generate 65 new full time and part time jobs (45 full time equivalent positions). McDonalds have been recruiting and training staff to be able to open so soon after the building is completed.
“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.
