A restaurant in Wellingborough has created 10 jobs following a £160,000 investment.

McDonald’s franchisee Perry Akhtar has expanded his Enstone Court restaurant in Wellingborough with a dual lane drive-thru, creating 10 jobs, taking the staff numbers from 90 to 100.

The new side by side drive-thru allows for two orders to be taken simultaneously, giving customers a quicker and smoother experience when ordering. The restaurant itself includes free WiFi as well as parking for 33 cars and an outside seating area.

Those employed at the restaurant will have access to leading training and development programmes, as well as the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications ranging from adult certificates in maths and English to a foundation degree in Managing Business Operations.

Perry Akhtar said: “As a local businessman I’m keen to continue to invest in the area and ensure every customer receives the best service possible. This is a significant investment, through which I expect to create 10 additional jobs; reduce waiting times, noise and congestion; and improve the overall customer experience.”
