Jobseekers have received a boost with the news that 20 new roles have been created in Bexleyheath.

The vacancies come as part of an £850,000 refurbishment to the McDonalds in Broadway Shopping Centre.

Major refurbishment works are currently underway at the restaurant, which first opened its doors in Bexleyheath 35 years ago.

Refit works are set to be complete in the next few weeks, and it is expected to re-open in mid-March, staffed by a 100-strong team.

The new-look restaurant will have a new upstair seating area with up to 40 extra seats, along with a new kitchen and refurbished restrooms.

Greg Abbott is a former McDonalds employee who now runs the Bexleyheath McDonalds franchise.

Mr Abbott, who took over as franchisee 16 years ago, said: “It’s a popular store, constantly busy.

“But the fact is in its present format the unit has always been too small for the large number of customers who use it.

“This has been in the pipeline for about two years, we’re doing it now, in February, as this is our quietest time of year and we wanted to cause minimal disruption to our extremely loyal customers of all ages.

“I assure them we’ll be back in business and serving them their favourites again, with a fresh new look, early in the spring and in time for the always busy Easter period.”
