A reopening date has been set for a fast food restaurant in Ipswich that closed earlier this month for refurbishments.

The McDonald's in Cardinal Park near the town centre is set to reopen on Tuesday, November 21.

The branch closed earlier in October for renovations to form part of McDonald's 'Convenience of the Future' programme.

The premises will include a new restaurant layout to allow for "a seamless experience for customers".

When the restaurant closed earlier this month, Gareth Pearson, McDonald's UK&I chief operating officer, said: "The pace of change within the restaurant industry is relentless, and the pandemic accelerated this with digital adoption gathering greater pace.

"Our customers rightly expect to have choice in how and where they order and collect their food, and our job is to ensure that every experience is a great one.

"For this to be the case, we know we also have to provide our restaurant teams and delivery partners with the best possible environment to work in."

The reopening date of the Cardinal Park branch coincides with the release of McDonald's Christmas menu.
