It will join Pizza Hut, Club 3000 Bingo and JD Gym among others at Robin Park, although sadly the Empire cinema closed earlier this year.

Lucy Dee, head of marketing at Taco Bell UK said: “The community has been crying out for Taco Bell and we’re very pleased to be able to deliver, creating local jobs despite challenging circumstances. We look forward to feeding residents from Thursday onwards”.

The restaurant, situated at 12 Anjou Boulevard, Robin Park Road Wigan, is open from Thursday, September 28 from 11am until late, seven days a week.
