An international fast food company is set to open in Truro shortly as part of an ambitious plan to expand across Cornwall.
Domino’s Pizza has paid the owner of Trafalgar Stores, just off the Trafalgar Roundabout, a ‘substantial amount’ to buy the business and turn it into a takeaway.
The deal which was negotiated by Miller Commercial property consultants includes a parcel of land behind the shop for a car park. The fast food company’s plans include a £250k extension and fitting for the store as well as paying out more than £100k to create enough car parking for its delivery mopeds and customers. All in all it will cost Domino’s well over £450k before it can deliver its first pizza.
Domino’s Pizza’s acquisitions surveyor, Tom Poulton, says the company wants to get a foothold in every major town in Cornwall. He revealed: “We’ve been waiting for more than three years for the right location to come up in Truro. We already have branches in Falmouth and Newquay. A deal is going through to acquire the former Wimpy site in Penzance and we’re looking at possible locations in Bodmin and Hayle.”
