Burger fans are going to be in for a treat as Burger King is set to return to Falmouth after an absence of 14 years.

The last Burger King in Falmouth was on Market Strand facing Prince of Wales Pier and closed in February 2010.

But now the manager of the Esso Londis petrol station at 60 Dracaena Avenue has plans to open a Burger King outlet at its site by extending the building on the side.

The building is currently under construction with the Burger King expected to open its doors on July 18.

Retail manager Manoj Kumaaran told the Packet that he was excited to be opening a Burger King in Falmouth but he was still looking for staff.

He said it was originally intended to install a Greggs at the site but the company had pulled out as it was proving difficult to open Greggs in Cornwall.

Instead it was decided to put in a Burger King as they found this would be very popular.

The site was scouted by the development team of the Motor Fuel Group which puts franchises in petrol and service stations all over the country.

It will not be a proper sit down restaurant although it will have one “family” table and three or four “high chairs” for customers who want to sit in.

The store is currently advertising for two “highly motivated” and experienced shift managers to join the two already employed.

They will be responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the restaurant, ensuring exceptional customer service, and maintaining high standards of food quality and cleanliness.

In a post on Facebook it says: “This is a leadership role that requires strong organizational skills, effective communication, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment.”

Manoj is also seeking six serving staff to be trained by the shift managers. Anybody interested in the roles can drop their CVs off at the station in Dracaena Avenue.
