TWO new fast-food restaurants are to open on the edge of Ipswich by the summer.

New Pizza Hut and KFC restaurants are to open on the Anglia Retail Park during June – and they are being joined by a new Carphone Warehouse.

Both of the restaurants are owned by the same company – Tricon Global. The KFC will be a drive-thru, similar to its unit at Cardinal Park.

Meanwhile a unit on the same development has been let to Carpetright, and that should be trading by the end of June.

The openings will complete the second phase of the retail park, which was opened at the end of 2000 and includes Ipswich's second Park and Ride centre.

The 32-acre park was developed by Simons Estates at a total cost of £48 million on land owned by Ipswich council.

The money raised by the council helps to subsidise the park and ride scheme – and has also been ploughed into community improvements across the town.

Carpetright has signed a 25-year lease for its unit on the end of the Retail Terrace. Agents Gilbert Bath and FDPSavills agreed the letting of the 930 metre sq. (10,000 sq. ft) unit at £15.50 per sq. ft. Carpetright is joining the development alongside retailers B&Q, Comet, Tempo and Land of Leather, who are already trading.

Simons Estates Project Director, Peter Batty, said: "We are delighted to have secured a high profile retailer such as Carpetright at Anglia Park.

"We now have an excellent tenant mix and retailers are currently reporting good trading levels."

The park had a hiatus shortly after its opening when the largest store, Homebase, pulled out and handed its building over to B & Q.

That store opened last spring and is due to be followed by a second B&Q Warehouse due to be built on the Ransomes Euro Retail Park next year.
