Five Guys to open third restaurant in the north
FAST-food chain Five Guys is to open its third restaurant in the north at Boucher Square in Belfast.
Five Guys, who also have outlets at Belfast's Victoria Square and Rushmere Shopping Centre in Craigavon have commenced fit-out on a new 3,000 sq ft store, due to open later this year, creating up to 60 jobs.
Boucher Square, located off the Boucher Road, opened in 2015 and is already home to Frankie & Bennys, Costa Coffee, Nandos and Eddie Rockets.
The new restaurant is part of a £1 million investment from Alterity Developments, who own Boucher Square and also includes the development of a new sq ft 2,500 sq ft restaurant unit at the leisure scheme.
Construction has now started on the sixth unit and is due for completion in March.
Richard Faloon, commercial director of Alterity Developments said the expansion is a direct response to growing demand.
“This significant extension of Boucher Square cements our commitment to providing the very best one-stop leisure and hospitality experience and we have been absolutely delighted with the success of Boucher Square which has meant us having to look at ways to try and meet the demand for operators wanting a presence in the scheme.”
Mark Thallon of letting agents TDK Property added:
"We expect the addition of Five Guys will soon be enhanced by the announcement of another new occupier in unit six."
