50 new jobs announced at fast food restaurant

More than 50 new jobs will be created when Tim Hortons opens its first restaurant and drive-thru in Gloucester.

The Canadian restaurant chain will be the first of its kind in the South West.

The restaurant at the Eastern Avenue Retail Park will offer full and part time roles, and internal seating for up to 94 guests, along with outside seating, and the drive-thru option for customers.

Kevin Hydes, UK chief commercial officer of Tim Hortons franchise said: "We already have a huge fan base in the South West of England, so are particularly excited to be bringing Tim Hortons to Gloucester for the first time.

"It is in a fantastic location and we are expecting a lot of interest from the surrounding areas, so it is a great start to our expansion in the West Country.

"We are proud to be investing in the local community and know that there is a wealth of talent, so we will be looking to recruit a variety of full and part-time roles very soon. We encourage local fans of Tim Hortons to keep an eye out for more news as we develop our plans."

The company has pledged to create 2000 new jobs in the UK as part of its expansion plans.
