Domino’s Pizza set to open in Town Square

Domino's Pizza.

Domino’s Pizza is planning to open at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke, creating between 25 and 30 new jobs.

Negotiations are now in the final stages and due to complete this month, with an opening proposed for November 2012.

The local pizza delivery expert will be taking a 1,400 sq. ft. unit in the Town Square that was formerly Simpson’s Fish & Chips.

Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:

“We are really looking forward to welcoming Domino’s which will be great for visitors to the centre and also serve the local community with its delivery service. It’s great to see another food operator so keen to move into the centre.”

An earlier attempt by Domino’s to open an outlet at the Willow Brook Centre was scuppered by a South Gloucestershire Council planning committee in 2011, when it refused the firm permission to change the designated use of a “vacant” garage on the corner of the centre’s access road to class A5 (hot food takeaway).

The arrival of Domino’s will restore the centre’s retail occupancy level to 100%, following Poundworld’s recent occupation of the former Peacocks unit.

Footfall at the Willow Brook Centre is due to top 4.5 million per annum by the end of 2012, adding up to 17.5 million since the centre opened in October 2008.

  1. Darn it, I was hoping for a McDonalds. Save driving to the mall or abbeywood.

    The nearest Dominos isn’t that far away, in Stoke Gifford, unless they’re planning on closing that one down once this one is working.

    I must admit, I use the Harvesters pretty heavily nowadays. Could do with a Cafe Gusto or something to give them a bit of a challenge.

    Willow Brook has an OK town square. Eating outside during the summer months would be fairly pleasant… once it stops raining.

  2. Papa’s? Where is the nearest one to Bradley Stoke/Patchway?

    Anyway, it does seem strange to open in Bradley Stoke, unless they are going to close the place in Stoke Gifford.

  3. Oh great another fast food place! Don’t we have enough throughout Bradley Stoke? They are overpriced also for what they are.

  4. All kudos to dominos… when you order on-line and are willing to pick up yourself, you can get a large saving. Especially on Tuesday. It’s fairly easy to get 2 large pizzas with all the nice toppings for around 15 quid.

    I’ve had no problems whatsoever with the Stoke Gifford branch over the years. The staff are helpful and the pizzas taste great. I hope they are not going to lose out by this new branch opening.

    It would just be nice to have a bit more variety in the town. We’re ok for pizzas, chinese, chippies, kfc, kebabs, subways, indian etc. Time for something new and perhaps healthier?
