Pizza chain to move in

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

PLANS have been sub­mit­ted for a new fran­chise of the pop­u­lar pizza chain Papa John’s.

The busi­ness, which was founded more than 30 years ago in Amer­ica, is look­ing to con­vert part of the former NatWest Bank site at Park Green, Mac­cles­field.

The scheme is to pro­vide a take­away and de­liv­ery ser­vice from 10am to 11pm seven days a week. The fran­chise will cre­ate 20 new jobs.

The ap­pli­ca­tion will see the con­ven­tion of a unit on the ground floor of Silk House.

In­ter­nal al­ter­ations in­clude a front of house cus­tomer re­cep­tion area and sales counter, a kitchen con­tain­ing oven, freezer, prepa­ra­tion and dis­patch area, cold stor­age, dry stor­age and a wash up area.

There will be no cus­tomer park­ing.

In plan­ning doc­u­ments the agent said the pro­posed devel­op­ment would bring a va­cant site back into ‘ac­tive eco­nomic use’.

Papa John’s is one of the largest pizza groups in the world with 4,800 out­lets in more than 40 coun­tries in­clud­ing 300 stores in the UK.

The scheme is now with Cheshire East Coun­cil and could be de­cided by the end of June.
