Family run eatery, The Works, is to open a new restaurant in the High Street, High Wycombe.
The new restaurant will be located at 11 High Street, High Wycombe in the premises formerly occupied by Greggs bakery.
Launched in Aylesbury during 2014 by the Bolton family The Works has built up a huge following with its waffles, home made ice creams, brunch and cocktails menu served at its restaurant at 7-9 Market Square, Aylesbury, HP20 1TA.
The new restaurant in High Wycombe will be open in time for the arrival of the Christmas shopping crowds and will create more than thirty jobs.
Owner Roger Bolton, who has worked in the food industry for 30 years, said: ‘We’re really excited about bringing The Works to High Wycombe and look forward to making many new friends along the way.‘
The former Greggs bakery shop, which closed on Saturday 5th March 2016, was bought and leased by Wycombe District Council as part of the authority’s continued aim of breathing new life into the historic area of the town centre.
The Works joins The Red Squirrel Brewery Shop Emporium, Reflections, Yes Please Golf and Enterprise HQ, the incubator run by High Wycombe Business Improvement District Company as new businesses that have grown out of the regeneration project.
Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration, Cllr Roger Wilson, said: ‘The Works is a great addition to High Wycombe’s restaurants and bars and a further boost to the ‘old area’ of town.
We have been quietly pursuing a regeneration initiative – acquiring old units, often on historic leases, and re-presenting them to the market to attract new businesses.
It is a step-by-step process with more still left to do but the latest addition of The Works shows that Wycombe District Council is helping to create jobs, boost business and breathe new life into the ‘old town’, all while creating a new revenue stream to protect and improve key services in the face of Government funding cuts.‘
The Works is currently looking for people to fill a number of vacancies at the new restaurant. Further information about vacancies and updates from The Works as the fit out of the High Street unit continues can be found at www.facebook.com/eatattheworks or @eatattheworks on Twitter and Instagram.
