A new food court will open at Wolverhampton’s Wulfrun Centre this spring, creating around 40 jobs – and this image shows what the 100-seater site will look like.
The food court will be spread over two floors and bring Burger King, Rooster Chicken and El Taco Loco to the eating area – bringing the number of food outlets in the centre to seven.
Work is due to be completed by the end of April and when it opens will create up to 40 jobs for local people.
CPL Foods has agreed a 15-year lease with London & Cambridge Properties, which owns and manages the shopping centre, to transform units nine and 10 into the modern eating area, which will measure 8,132 sq ft,.
Lamen Reddy, managing director of CPL Foods, which has 40 restaurants across England and Wales, said: “We are very pleased to be in the final stages of opening our fifth food court in the West Midlands and believe that the Wulfrun Centre is the ideal place for our brands.
“Our food courts are proving to be very popular in busy town and city centres and we expect Wolverhampton to be no different.
“Groups of friends can enjoy different styles of food yet still sit together.”
Andrew Barrett, LCP asset manager, added: “We’re very excited to offer shoppers a new food court, which will enable them to choose from three different offerings.
“We are committed to providing Wolverhampton shoppers with a great range of stores and facilities in modern, bright surroundings and have welcomed several new tenants over the past few months.
“The food court will be a very welcome addition as we continue our investment in the Wulfrun Centre.”
The news comes as the city’s Mander Centre is also undergoing a £35 million revamp.
The first refurbishments are under way at the shopping precinct, which will be anchored by a 90,000 sq ft Debenhams.
It is due to be completed in October 2017.
The revamp is one of the most significant private-sector investments in the city over the last 20 years and will create up to 150 new local jobs.
