Two major fast-food chains are opening new stores in Wiltshire.

It has recently been announced by RO Real Estate that the group has let out two food retail units to Taco Bell and Greggs on its development at Solstice Park in Amesbury.

Work on the units is reportedly underway and practical completion is expected this summer with customer visits expected to commence later this year.

A unit is being developed for Taco Bell, the American fast-food restaurant chain, that offers Mexican-inspired foods.

The American brand will open a drive-thru and a hot meal restaurant at Solstice Park, replete with a dining space, kitchen storage, walk-in chillers, and employee welfare areas.

Wiltshire Council approved the application on January 18, and construction has already begun.

Other tenants will also include leading food retailer Greggs, the  British bakery chain, which specialises in savoury products and sweet items. Customers will soon be able to enjoy their favourite products from the bakery franchise on the go.

Confirming the news, a Greggs spokesperson said: "Greggs is due to open a new shop in Solstice Park later this year.

"While we are unable to share any details at the moment, we will be sure to share further information in the coming months."

In addition, once construction of the site is complete, GRIDSERVE, the pioneering sustainable energy solutions provider will install eight High Power Chargers for electric vehicles, which will be located adjacent to the food retailers. Their next-generation chargers are supported by renewable energy from their hybrid solar farms and provide up to 350kW of power, the fastest currently available charging speeds.

RO has enjoyed previous success at the 160-acre mixed-use Solstice Park development, strategically located in central southern England on the A303 trunk road between London and Bristol.

There are already several leading international and national food and beverage retailers as well as trade counter occupiers on the site such as Home Bargains, Screwfix, Howdens, McDonald’s and Costa Coffee.

David Kershaw, Group Real Estate Director, the RO said: “There are many attractive opportunities to be found in regional investment and development, particularly as the UK opens for business again after the trials and tribulations of the last couple of years.

"Solstice Park benefits from the A303 infrastructure and is located in a key regional gateway location.

"We have secured three leading tenants, each of which is a highly respected name and look forward to completing the development work on these units and then welcoming customers later in the year.”
