New look for fast food restaurant
McDonald’s re-opens after �300,000 make-over
THE Roundswell branch of McDonald’s reopened on Monday with a modern new look after a �300,000 refurbishment.
The restaurant, which originally opened in December 2000, has increased seating, new signage, an improved drive through system and enhanced patio area.
It has also created eight new full and part-time jobs for local people.
The makeover is part of a �1.6m investment in five local branches by franchise holder David Hunt, from Barnstaple.

Mr Hunt, who also runs McDonald’s restaurants in Whiddon Valley, Barnstaple, Minehead, Tiverton and Taunton, said: “We’ve given the restaurant a complete makeover with modern and relevant internal design features fit for the 21st century.
“We hope it will raise the profile of McDonald’s in the Roundswell area of Barnstaple – customers are already telling us they love it!”

The �297,000 make-over, which follows a similar revamp of the Whiddon Valley restaurant in 2009, took just one week and six days to complete.
“I would like to thank our North Devon customers for their loyal support during the closure,” added Mr Hunt.
“Amazingly, more than 60 per cent of the trade transferred to the Whiddon Valley branch during the closure. It broke the site’s daily takings record set in August 2000 five times.”
