New jobs for King’s Lynn as McDonald’s plans another restaurant.

Former Little Chef at West Lynn set to be transformed into drive-through and restaurant

A proposed new McDonald's restaurant on the outskirts of King's Lynn is expected to create up to 60 full and part-time jobs.

The former Little Chef, adjacent to the services at the Pullover roundabout, is set to change to a McDonald's which could also include a drive-through facility.

Plans for the scheme have been submitted to West Norfolk Council.

A supporting statement said 'almost all' of the new jobs would be recruited from the local community.

The application proposes to re-use the existing restaurant with the addition of an extension to the rear with further extensions to the dining area. The seating area will cater for up to 60 customers.

A patio area is also proposed and the car park is set to be reconfigured to accommodate the drive-through lane. The outside of the building is also to get a make-over if the application is approved.

'McDonald's will employ local contractors to maintain and manage both hard and soft landscaped areas on a regular basis. The overall external appearance of the store is an important element and maintains and adds to the customers' experience, and ultimately to the success of the restaurant,' says the application.

McDonald's operates 1,200 restaurants around the UK, many of them under franchises, and employs around 85,000 people. Cooking oil from all its sites is recycled to create bio-fuel for its fleet of delivery vehicles.

The Little Chef restaurant closed in February.
