TOP CHICKEN chain Nandos will be opening in Redditch next spring.
The restaurant has signed a 15-year lease to take on a 4,000 sq ft space in the Kingfisher Centre as part of The Hub, will which also now include oriental buffet eatery Real China.
Pure Gym had already taken on the space which was originally the lower floor of TJ Hughes and is set to open in December, with the Vue cinema upstairs also being included in the rebranded leisure quarter.
Both of the restaurants are due to open in Easter 2014, with discussions ongoing with interested parties for two further restaurant units in the upper floor of the former TJ Hughes site near the bus station.
General manager Ken Williams said: "The retail environment has shifted considerably over the past year, filling high street brands with hope that the situation is turning round as people decide to spend more money.
"We've been in talks with a number of restaurants for some time now and we're delighted to welcome both Nandos and Real China to the Kingfisher family.
"The Hub will mark a new era for the centre, making Kingfisher a true leisure destination offering not only shops but also numerous eating options, cinema and a gym."
