Developers of the Markham Vale scheme in Chesterfield say they are delighted that the new McDonalds restaurant is trading well.

Henry Boot Developments say the new 3,556 sq ft McDonald’s drive-thru, which is part of the first phase of development at Markham Vale West, has propsered since opening.

It was constructed in just 18 weeks and is now open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The restaurant is owned by local McDonald’s franchisee Walter Wright who employs 90 full and part time staff there.

Mr Wright said: “As a local businessman, I’m keen to ensure continued investment in the area and I’m delighted that the new restaurant has created a significant number of new jobs for local people.”

Potential new occupiers are in discussions to provide supporting leisure services to cater for the growing number of employees at the fast growing business park.

Vivienne Clements, Director of Henry Boot Developments, commented: “It’s great to see the appeal of Markham Vale go from strength to strength.

“We are looking to make further announcements regarding supporting retail and leisure operators in the near future.

“These operators will service the growing numbers of employees based at Markham Vale and the wider community of Duckmanton, Bolsover and Chesterfield,” she said.
