A new drive-through restaurant is set to open in a coastal town today (Wednesday).

More than 55 jobs will be created as the brand-new McDonald’s restaurant opens at the site off Mill Road at Horn Hill in Lowestoft.

Branding, signs and logos have appeared on the new McDonald’s restaurant in the past few weeks, which is set to open at the site on Kirkley Rise at 11am on April 21.

The drive-through outlet of the fast-food restaurant chain is set to open following significant investment from local franchisee Lee Sparkes.

For now, the new restaurant will be operating with takeaway, Drive-Thru and McDelivery only, with dine-in paused as Government restrictions are in place.
