Bella Italia, Zizzi, Harvester, Nando's, Wagamama's, Chimichanga, Premier Inn and Pizza Express are all coming to Telford's Southwater development!!!!
They have all been confirmed for Telford 's £250m Southwater development - as the ambitious plan to kick start a vibrant night time economy in the town centre gathers pace.
These new businesses are due to open by early 2014 and are expected to create 260 new jobs at the heart of Southwater
Cineworld has already been announced as operator of the new Southwater Square 's 11 screen multiplex cinema and chief executive Steve Wiener was in Telford today to meet council leader Kuldip Sahota.
Now eight instantly recognisable names from the hotel and catering industry have also been announced as operators of surrounding buildings.
They include Bella Italia, Chimichanga, Harvester, Nando's, Premier Inn, Pizza Express, Wagamama and Zizzi.
This will mean a range of cuisines will be available in the heart of Telford including Italian, Mexican, Asian and Portuguese.
The restaurants will face on to the new Southwater Square and will have terraces for outdoor dining.
Detailed planning approval for the development was granted earlier this month and work is due to start on site in the summer, with the development expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
