Nando’s to create 33 jobs in Derry

Nandos_logo.svgDerry will get a jobs boost when the Nando's chain of restaurants opens in Derry next week creating 33 jobs.

The figures were given at a licensing application at Derry Crown Court when the chain applied for a licence to sell alcohol at their premises in Derry's Richmond Centre.

The new shop is the third one in the North and is part of a chain of more than 300 outlets across the country employing more than 8,000 people.

The architect who was responsible for designing the new outlet gave evidence that there would be seating for 114 people and added that the premises would be suitable for the sale of alcohol.

The Operating Director of Nando's Mr. Robert Collins said there would be a strict over 25s policy which meant that if anyone was believed to be under 25 they would have to show identification.

He explained that the outfitting of the Richmond Centre premises cost £850,000.

Judge Philip Babington granted the licence and wished the company well in their new venture.
