Bella Italia has announced plans to create over 110 jobs in the East Midlands over the next year, including a number at Mansfield where they will open alongside rival chains, Nando’s and Chiquita.

Although they have not outlined exactly how many jobs will be available at the new site earmarked on Mansfield Leisure Park, the Italian chain restaurant says they will need front-of-house team members, chefs and management staff.

Planning permission was granted to build the three restaurant units on the site last year, and it is expected that more than 100 jobs will be created between the three.

It is hoped they will be open by this coming Christmas.

Nando’s is a popular South African restaurant group, which specialises in the Mozambican–Portuguese chicken dishes, while Chiquito is a Mexican bar and grill, famed for its spicy food.
