More details about the town's first Five Guys have been revealed, including where it will be based, and what the layout of the restaurant will look like.

Ipswich is set to get its first Five Guys soon, which will open in the former Dough&Co restaurant in Cardinal Park, next to Subway and Nando's.

In August it was announced that the American fast food chain will be coming to the town as jobs appeared on Indeed, with the franchise confirming the news in September.

This was welcomed news for councillors in Ipswich, and also residents, who said that Five Guys was one of the restaurants they would most like to see open in Ipswich.

The chain has now sent a planning application to Ipswich Borough Council to seek alterations to the shopfront and associated signage.

The proposal is to replace the existing shopfront with one that is more modern, including new doors for better access.

There would be one door for entrance, where customers would then queue and go round in a one-way system to pick up their food and get their drink, before leaving through the exit doors.

The inside of the restaurant will have two drinks stations, a pickup area, a condiments station, four toilets, including one disabled and spaces for up to 72 guests.

Outside, there will be a further 28 seats, bringing the total up to 100, as well as two branded umbrellas and branded breeze screens, in keeping with other units along Cardinal Park.

An opening date is yet to be revealed, but a spokesman for Five Guys said the new restaurant could be open later this year or early 2024.

Five Guys would join Subway, Nando's and Ask Italian as the operating restaurants at the site following Harvester's closure.
