RESTAURANT chain Nando’s is involved in talks to occupy a unit at the new Yate Riverside complex.
The company has submitted planning applications for a customised restaurant frontage but a lease is yet to be finalised.
Yate Riverside is an extension to the town’s shopping centre, with a cinema, shops and restaurants to open at the site off Link Road.
Andy Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre manager, said: “We are currently in legal negotiations with Nando’s, which is in the process of taking one of the units.
“Obviously, as soon as we are able to confirm whether it has signed up, we will do so.
“Nando’s was by far the most requested restaurant when we undertook the public consultation for the scheme so we are delighted it wants to join the other great names in the town centre.”
Other national restaurant operators and retailers have expressed an interest or have committed to opening in Yate.
Prezzo and Dean’s Diner restaurants will join Cineworld, Next and Pets at Home, with further well known chains waiting in the wings.
The scheme is now more than 70 per cent let, with the shops and restaurants scheduled to open in December and the cinema due to screen its first films at Easter 2016.
