Nandos in Yate Riverside talks
Popular nationwide peri-peri chicken restaurant Nandos is in talks to take a unit at Yate Riverside.
The company has submitted planning applications for the customised restaurant frontage but as Andy Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager explains, the lease is yet to be finalised:
“We are currently in legal negotiations with Nandos who are in the process of taking one of the units in the new Yate Riverside leisure complex but we have yet to finalise anything. Obviously as soon as we are able to confirm whether they have signed-up we will do so.
“Nandos was by far the most requested restaurant when we undertook the public consultation for the scheme so we are delighted they want to join the other great names in the town centre.”
Nandos will join an ever-growing list of national restaurant operators and retailers who have expressed an interest or are committed to coming to Yate. Prezzo, Frankie & Bennys and Dean’s Diner restaurants are already committed to joining Cineworld, Next and Pets at Home with further well known chains waiting in the wings.”
With the scheme now over 70% let, the shops and restaurants are scheduled to open in December with the cinema opening Easter 2016. Handover of the restaurants and shops will be next month and the cinema unit will start fitting-out from December.
