A BRAND new McDonald’s restaurant is set to open in Port Glasgow creating around 100 new jobs.
Seven other central belt branches of the popular burger chain are also earmarked for a major face-lift as part of a £4m makeover.
New restaurant opening in Port Glasgow
Restaurants in Clydebank, Balloch, Anniesland and Greenock are all being revamped with the updates to their technology.
This includes touch screens, self order machines and other updates that have been added under the brand’s new enhanced customer experience.
The restaurants will also have improved kitchen layouts and a larger menu range introduced over the course of the next few years.
It comes as Leven Vale Restaurants secured millions of pounds in funding from HSBC to expand its McDonald’s franchises across Central Scotland.

Grant Bett, Relationship Director at HSBC in Scotland, said: “Steve has exciting plans for his business as he looks to add to his portfolio and improve the restaurants he currently has, to the benefit of the local economies.
“We’re thrilled to be able to support this growth through a loan and debt refinance package and look forward to seeing where it helps take the business next.”
Steve Tomlin added: “The package HSBC put together was fantastic.
“It was more than just financial support, they offered wellbeing seminars for staff and group meetings throughout the process.
“The ambition of the bank overall matched our own and we’re thrilled with the support we’ve had from Grant and his team to date.”
