Franchise owner David Hunt said he is ‘very excited’ to open the new McDonald’s restaurant in Bideford next month.

The brand new McDonald’s restaraunt in Bideford is starting to take shape for its opening on Wednesday, October 21.

Yesterday (Monday) morning the site at Atlantic Park on Clovelly Road was bare, but by 5.30pm the restaurant’s shell was in place.

The modules were craned into place as the delighted franchise owner David Hunt looked on.

David, who took over his first McDonald’s in Eastern Avenue, Barnstaple, in 1999, is looking forward to opening his sixth restaurant and drive thru.

He said: “It’s an exciting opportunity to come back to our original marketplace and reward our loyal customers with this brand new, state-of-the-art restaurant.”

McDonald’s is currently looking for staff to work in the Bideford and Barnstaple sites. Visit www.mcdonalds.co.uk/people for more information.
