McDonald's: New two-storey restaurant creating 50 jobs in St Helens
10:00pm Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
THE new McDonald's drive-thru restaurant is opening this month in St Helens town centre, creating around 50 jobs.
Situated on Chalon Way, next to The Range, the two storey building represents further investment into the town centre, following the opening of Nando’s.
However, there are some Star readers who have questioned its opening given that are two other McDonald's within a few miles radius.
But the fast food giant is focusing on the benefits it is bringing in terms of investment and jobs.
Local McDonald’s operations consultant Josh Morriss said “We are very pleased to be investing in a new restaurant in St Helens.
"It will enable us to create at least 50 jobs with prospects and training, for local people.”
A McDonald’s spokesperson added: “Those employed at the restaurant will have access to leading training and development programmes, as well as the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications ranging from adult certificates in maths and English to a Foundation degree in managing business operations.”
The restaurant will seat 142 customers and will also include an outdoor area.
It will also feature a digital play area where McDonald's states that "games and activities are projected onto the floor, encouraging kids to interact and get active".
