DOMINO’S Pizza has confirmed it will open an outlet in Elgin in the autumn, bringing up to 35 jobs to the town.
Plans for the fast food unit, submitted to the planning authority last year in partnership with Lidl, were given the green light this week.
Approval for a takeaway at the west side of Lidl’s car park, next to the Railway Station on Station Road, came after an objection from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency on flooding grounds was lifted.
A spokesperson for the pizza producer said: “We have identified Elgin as having great potential for pizza and have been working very closely with Lidl for some time now.
“We have been granted planning permission and are looking forward to bringing Domino’s Pizza to the local residents of Elgin. We plan to open the store late autumn time.
“Opening a new store in Elgin will generate around 25-35 new jobs for local people and it will be operated as a franchise.
“Domino’s Pizza takes its role as a responsible neighbour very seriously and our franchisees work very hard to play an active role in the community, not only by delivering great tasting pizza but also by supporting numerous local charities, groups and events.”
The Elgin outlet will be one of 726 Domino’s Pizza stores across the UK and Ireland.
