AN UPMARKET burger chain is set to open in Worcester as part of a major redevelopment of one of the city’s shopping centres.

Salmon Harvester Opportunity Fund (SHOF), which is behind the multi-million revamp of Cathedral Plaza, has struck a deal with Byron Hamburgers.

The restaurant, which will take over at 4,392 sq ft unit at the shopping centre, is the first to be announced by the developer since they secured planning permission from Worcester City Council in August.

Nick Webb, of SHOF, said: “We are targeting good quality restaurant and retail businesses new to Worcester to increase shopper dwell time and to compliment existing retailers.

“With 36 restaurants in London, Byron is expanding across the regions and we are delighted to have signed this exciting operator for its first restaurant in the West Midlands.”

He also confirmed they were in talks with a number of operators about the remaining restaurant and retail units.

They will all form part of the scheme, which is expected to create 100 new jobs when it opens in the latter part of 2016.

A total of seven restaurant will overlook a new public square which will be developed jointly with Worcestershire County Council and the city council and will be located on the site of an existing roundabout between Deansgate and College Street.

Coun Marc Bayliss, cabinet member for Economic Prosperity at the city council, added: “It is great to see that the Cathedral Square project has secured its first new restaurant and Worcester City Council is looking forward to playing its part in the delivery of the new square, which is exactly the type of investment our city centre needs.

“The new square has long been a city council ambition and we are pleased to be working with Salmon and the county council to bring this exciting development forward.”
