Shopping Centre spiced with Hotcha

Date Posted:15/04/2013

Hotcha is to open a restaurant in Yate Shopping Centre in the former electrical showrooms in North Parade.

A planning application for this fast rising Chinese restaurant and takeaway chain has been submitted and it is hoped the branch will open in late summer.

Andrew Lowrey, Centre Manager, said: “We are very pleased that Hotcha wants to open in the Centre. We have always wanted to extend the range of eateries and nightlife offers in the Centre and we feel this complements our existing establishments.

“The North Parade units have been vacant for some time so it is good news that they will be occupied. We have submitted a planning application for their change of use and for some external changes as it is important such a change gets a prominent visibility from the surrounding areas.

“This further great news hot on the heels of last week’s cinema announcement demonstrates that Yate is an attraction for local, regional and national chains.”

Two of the three new East Walk retail units, Costa Coffee and Sports Direct, are scheduled to open next week with Marks & Spencer Simply Food following in June. There will be further announcements about other plans coming forward in the next few weeks.

Hotcha already has nine other stores – six in Bristol, one in Weston Super Mare and two in Swindon – and will create further employment opportunities for staff in Yate.
