Wednesbury is about to get a new chicken shop as Dubai-owned, Chicking, has announced plans to expand into the Black Country, bringing with it new job opportunities.
The new international fast-food chain branch is set to open at 48a Union Street, which used to be home to the Acorns Children’s Hospice for the passed 25 years.
After launching in London, Chicking has rent the 771 sq ft unit on a seven-year lease and in anticipation of opening its third largest branch in the UK.
The deal to bring the takeaway to Wednesbury was helped along by Midlands-based commercial property agents, Bone Wolfe.
James Mattin, managing partner at Bond Wolfe, said: “It’s always a pleasure to help growing companies with their property needs, and we were delighted to help find the right place for ChicKing’s new franchise.
“The unit is located on the main pedestrian high street in the heart of Wednesbury town centre, which should result in plenty of footfall from potential customers.
“We’re especially pleased that this development will create several jobs in the area and we look forward to helping ChicKing expand elsewhere in the region in the future.”
