When new McDonald's will finally open its doors in ASDA in Taunton

Somerset’s newest McDonald’s will open its doors next week as work continues to convert a former cafe. Set to be the first of its kind in the county, the fast food chain will open a new branch inside Asda supermarket in Taunton. Construction workers can be seen working at the store to overhaul the closed cafe with branded hoarding and signs around the site.

A sign posted on hoarding inside Asda has revealed to shoppers that the new restaurant is employing new staff and will open on Wednesday, November 20. The poster reads: “Hiring now: new restaurant opening on November 20.

“Apply at people.mcdonalds.co.uk.” McDonald’s is looking to fill a number of part-time and full-time roles, including staff members, customer care assistants and delivery crew.

Customers in Taunton will also be able to use UberEats to deliver food from this restaurant to their homes or businesses. This new model is a part of a growing trend from the fast food giant which has opened restaurants inside areas of Asda supermarkets in Bristol, Bournemouth, Nuneaton and Swindon. This will be the third McDonald’s branch in Somerset’s county town and will operate alongside their East Street and Hankridge Farm branches.

The opening will be one day after the arrival of the famous Coca-Cola Christmas truck in the supermarket’s car park on Tuesday, November 19.

The famous attraction visited the site last year and transformed a section of the car park into a winter wonderland. The big red truck was so “incredibly popular” that staff extended the visit by one hour to ensure everyone in the queue could see the truck and take photographs with it. Visitors will be able to pose for photos in front of the festive truck and get a free drink between 12pm and 8pm.
