Oodles Chinese UK – Some 15 jobs are set to be created in Nottingham after a fast casual dining brand revealed it is to open in the city.
Oodles Chinese, which already has six branches in the UK, will officially opened its doors on Mansfield Road, on Saturday March 30th.
The opening is part of an ambitious growth strategy for the brand targeting 10 more openings by 2020 creating over 200 new jobs. In the next few months, it will open stores in Coventry, Leeds, London, Blackburn and Preston. Earlier this month it opened its first store in the North West in Bolton and first store in the South at Luton.
Mohammed Umar, director, said: “We are delighted to open our first store in Nottingham which is well overdue and definitely due to demand.
“We chose Mansfield Road specifically due to the high footfall in the area and we already have a large fan base here in the city.
“We genuinely believe our concept of fresh and unique tasting food is something Nottingham has never experienced before.
“We have created a warm authentic, inviting design in this store especially with a live cooking element so customers feel closer to the Oodles Chinese experience of freshly prepared food as soon as they walk into the new restaurant.
“Our aim now going forward is to really drive our expansion and want this Mansfield Road store to be the first of a long chain in the region creating jobs for the locality.”
“We are now actively looking for new sites and franchise partners in the region and across the UK to help us achieve our expansion plans.”
