Work on the eagerly awaited Burger King has started in Burnley today.
The new drive-thru restaurant, situated on the same site as the Reel Cinema in Manchester Road, is expected to be completed within six weeks.
It will offer a drive-thru service with a small seating area inside the building.
Recruitment for staff has started at the restaurant that was originally due to be finished last year when the cinema complex underwent a massive £1.5M refurbishment.
Reel Cinema manager Andrew White said he was pleased to see that work had finally begun on Burger King.
He said: "We hope it will bring new customers to the cinema as a destination place.
"This is something new for the town that I am sure people will welcome.
"It is exciting news for Burnley."
