It has seating for 179 customers, and is open after £500,000 was invested in the new restaurant.

Kettering Council welcomed the deal, signed in the spring, bringing Chimichanga to Kettering, as it meant the Market Place properties were fully occupied.

The chain’s operations director, Peter Morrison, said: “We are excited to be opening our new restaurant in Kettering.

“Mexican food is more popular than ever and I am confident people of all ages will enjoy the food and drink on offer and that the restaurant will be a great addition to Kettering’s social scene.”
