The store at Eastway Hub retail park, next to the M55 and Broughton roundabout, has been closed since the outbreak of Covid in March 2020.

But the franchisee, who also runs the Subway at nearby Fulwood Central, has confirmed the store will reopen on Monday, April 4.

Neil Denny, managing director at Fast and Fresh, said the branch – which opened in summer 2019 – has been closed due to staffing issues caused by the pandemic.
