American fast food chain Taco Bell is looking for staff for its new outlet in Great Yarmouth.

There are some 26 in the UK already and the company announced this year they would be expanding further.

The restaurant will be the first in Norfolk with the closest branches being in Essex.

A post on jobs’ website Indeed said it was expected to open in mid December.

The location of the restaurant has not been revealed but town centre manager Jonathan Newman said he hoped it would not be an out-of-town offer.

He said several empty shops were ripe for Taco Bell including the former Spud-u-like shop in Regent Road.

The restaurants serve a variety of Tex-Mex foods that include tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, novelty and specialty items.

Most of them are operated as a franchise.
