As we revealed last July, the famous burger chain confirmed the sale of the former multi-storey car park site at Broadway for the location of its first ever Nelson restaurant.
And bosses at the fast food giant have now revealed that the drive-thru restaurant is set to open in the spring.
The new McDonald’s is expected to create 20 full-time and 40 part-time jobs, according to plans previously approved by Pendle Borough Council. Parking space is earmarked for 40 cars.
The drive-thru restaurant planning application was submitted by Future Properties Limited with agent Campbell Driver Partnership.
Speaking in July, a spokesman for Future Properties Limited, which owns Pendle Rise shopping mall, said: “This sale represents an important investment in the town centre. The new McDonald’s will attract people into the town and also help wider changes taking place.”
