Italian restaurant chain, Carluccio’s, is to open its new restaurant in Harrogate on 28 March 2014.
The venture is creating about 35 job and is only opening after winning a planning appeal with the Harrogate Borough Council.
The restaurant will offer an all-day Italian restaurant, food shop and deli at the former Optical Express opticians unit on James Street.
Simon Kossoff (pictured) the CEO of Carluccio’s said: Harrogate is a beautiful town with a wonderful selection of great, traditional retailers and plenty of restaurants of all types to choose from. Carluccio’s brings something to both the food retail scene in Harrogate and the casual restaurant experience, and we know the people of Harrogate are looking forward to our arrival.
