Burger King will be opening a roadside restaurant inside a Little Chef on the A12.

The new branch, on the northbound carriageway in Feering, is being opened by franchisee Kout Food Group, which already runs Little Chef and Burger King restaurants in the UK.

The restaurant, which is due to open in early June, will create 15 new jobs.

Kout Food Group operations director Lee Skinner said: “We are delighted to announce the opening of this new restaurant.

“There will be 15 new jobs for the area in the restaurant which is situated in the heart of the Feering services on the A12.”

The restaurant, which will not include a drive-thru, is expected to be open from 10am to 10pm daily.
