A Thetford fast-food chain is set to employ a further 10 to 15 people once it reopens after undergoing refurbishment works.

The McDonald's restaurant, on the Forest Retail Park, will undergo a transformation which will cost an estimated £700,000 following investment from franchisee Kenny Russell.

The changes in the store will improve the speed and ease of ordering food with the option to use one of the four self-order kiosks.

These will allow customers to browse the menu, look at nutritional information and personalise their meals.

Mr Russell said: 'As an active member of the community I am keen to invest in the local area and I am looking forward to the transformation of the McDonald's at Forest Retail Park as it will improve the restaurant experience for our customers.'
