The people of Wellingborough want a Nando’s to come to the town centre.

McDonald’s in Market Street will close when a bigger branch opens in London Road in October.

And chicken restaurant Nando’s is so far the favourite eatery to replace the hamburger restaurant, according to a poll.

So far 258 people have voted in an online poll by Wellingborough Chamber of Commerce launched to gauge opinion on what eatery should replace the restaurant.

A total of 56 per cent have voted for the popular chicken chain to open in the prime town centre position.

A further 27 per cent want another burger restaurant to replace the famous golden arches with the remaining 17 per cent saying there were in a favour of an Italian restaurant.

Chamber president David Cross said: “The people of Wellingborough have spoken – they want a Nando’s in the town centre.

“The position in Market Street is such a visible location in the town centre, so as a chamber of commerce we are keen to ensure the premises does not remain empty for long, if at all.”

If you would like to have your say, you can continue to vote online here until the end of August.

The property is available to let on a new lease through chamber member and commercial property consultants Prop-Search.
