New international fast-food chain creates jobs in the Black Country with help from Bond Wolfe

James Mattin, Managing Partner at Bond Wolfe

A rapidly growing international fast-food chain is creating several new jobs as part of its expansion into the Black Country, after a property deal arranged by Bond Wolfe.

The leading Midlands commercial property agents has arranged for ChicKing – which specialises in tasty fried chicken dishes – to open a franchise in Wednesbury.

The new branch at 48a Union Street will be the ChicKing’s third UK branch after launching in London last year, and the Dubai-owned chain’s 140th branch worldwide.

James Mattin, Managing Partner at Bond Wolfe, said: “It’s always a pleasure to help growing companies with their property needs, and we were delighted to help find the right place for ChicKing’s new franchise.

“The unit is located on the main pedestrian high street in the heart of Wednesbury town centre, which should result in plenty of footfall from potential customers.

“We’re especially pleased that this development will create several jobs in the area and we look forward to helping ChicKing expand elsewhere in the region in the future.”

ChicKing has rented the 771 sq ft unit on a seven-year lease. The property was previously occupied by Acorns Childrens Hospice for 25 years.

Meanwhile, Bond Wolfe has also arranged the sale of a five-bedroomed house in the Black Country to a private investor. The property on Norfolk Road in Wollaston, Stourbridge, is producing rent of £17,000 from a local housing association which helps to accommodate young people.
