A £5m investment by fast-food chain KFC at Glengormley will see the creation of a giant new restaurant there and 120 new jobs.
The new venue on the Antrim Road, which replaces the existing outlet after 36 years, will have the latest touch-screen ordering technology and an 80-seater restaurant.
A significant amount is also being invested by the Herbert Group – the UK’s biggest franchisee for KFC – so that home delivery can be offered in all restaurants from next year.
A spokesman for the Herbert Group said that this was ‘an exciting time’ as it invested in expansion in GB and among its head office team in south Belfast.
The old KFC restaurant at Glengormley will stay open until the new venue is ready to trade next year.
