McDonald’s in Chesterfield has undergone a “bold transformation” – creating up to ten new jobs.

The restaurant reopened last Wednesday after a high-tech makeover to feature new self-service kiosks, digital menu boards and tablet computers.

The restaurant, which has been situated in Low Pavements since 1984, is owned by McDonald’s franchisee Walter Wright.

He said: “I understand the importance of investing in the community and high streets so it’s great to be able to play a part in the regeneration of the area and bring an extra much-needed boost to the economy here in Chesterfield.

“It’s not just about providing a fresh, new environment though – I also believe in investing in my people and am delighted to be able to create up to ten new jobs as a result of the redesign.

“With excellent training programmes and career opportunities, including the apprenticeship scheme, on offer to all of McDonald’s employees, I hope the roles will appeal to a broad spectrum of people across Chesterfield.”

Workers at the restaurant will also benefit from improved kitchen facilities and a new room with comfortable seating, a television and a computer.
