Frankie & Benny’s restaurant and Pets at Home are the latest companies to take space at the cinema-led scheme in Link Road.
The Italian-American restaurant will be one of six eating establishments located next to the Cineworld six-screen cinema complex, with announcements already made that Prezzo and Dean’s Diner have committed to the scheme.
Pets at Home will be the second of three new retailers on the site and follows fashion chain Next in deciding to move to Yate.
Yate Riverside is an extension to the main Yate Shopping Centre and the first of the new businesses are due to open in December.
Shopping centre manager, Andy Lowrey, said: “These are two more high quality names to add to the ever-growing list of retailers and restaurants represented and interested in coming to Yate.
“The interest shown in the new Riverside development is very encouraging and we are still talking to new tenants interested in taking space in the town.
“Construction is on schedule to hand over the restaurant units to tenants in September and the cinema in December for fitting out, with openings in December and next Easter respectively.”
Mark Hull, group property controller, of Ivypark Ltd - asset managers for the owners of the shopping centre and Yate Riverside - said: “We always knew this development would be of great interest to retailers but as owners we have got to ensure there is a good mix that will appeal to the general public.”
