Revealed- Where Chesterfield chippy Chesters will open new restaurant
The owners of Chester’s Fish & Chips Restaurant have unveiled their plans for a second location in Chesterfield.
The new premises will be located on the Markham Vale services site at Junction 29A of the M1, opposite McDonalds and adjacent to Starbucks.
The investment will cost more than £1 million and will create over 30 local jobs.
Set to open in spring 2021, the new venue will offer a seaside-themed restaurant and a takeaway counter as well as a separate drive-through lane.
The announcement comes after a very busy period for the team thanks to the Government’s recent Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
On their busiest day, the restaurant had to turn away over 196 bookings and in one day served 756 people.
Thousands of customers visited throughout August, and the owners have decided to extend the scheme, offering 20 per cent of bills, including alcohol, every Monday to Thursday throughout September.
Chris Ioannides, Owner of Chesters, said: “We are excited to announce the opening of a second restaurant for Chesters, which will serve all our best known dishes.
"We will continue to support the local community and charities like we always strive to and give back something to Chesterfield and the suurounding areas.”
He added: “We’d like to thank all our loyal customers for their support and we look forward to meeting new customers at our new Markham Vale location.”
