The Nandos restaurant chain will open in a revamped shopping centre in Eastbourne.
Nando’s is the first restaurant to sign up to be part of the £85 million extension to the Eastbourne Arndale Centre in East Sussex.
The chicken restaurant franchise will be one of seven new stores to open on the same floor as the multi-screen digital cinema.
Work is also under way on the construction of the Nando’s restaurant in Goldstone Retail Park, Hove, which is set to open later this year.
Next, H & M and Cineworld have also been signed up for the 170,000 sq ft scheme that will contain an additional 22 retail units.
The extension is expected to be completed in 2018.
