Greggs is creating 14 new jobs with its latest store opening in west Belfast. The Kennedy Centre outlet opens its doors tomorrow, and is the latest in a massive expansion by the low-cost bakery chain in Northern Ireland.

The new cafe opening was originally reported by the Belfast Telegraph back in May.

Ryan Kee, director of retail agency at Lambert Smith Hampton, said the outlet "will be a welcome addition to the centre and visitors will be able to purchase all of the well-known classics including sausage rolls and pastries, as well as healthier options".

He added: "The arrival of Greggs to the Kennedy Centre is testament to the success of the scheme which is now fully let on the ground floor. The opening of this new store will add to an already diverse food offering and encourage an increase in footfall.

"There are other deals progressing at Kennedy Centre and we anticipate making further announcements in the near future."

It is understood the firm is planning to roll out 50 shops across the province in total.

Boss Roger Whiteside said Greggs continue opening stores across Northern Ireland.

"We are very pleased and we are up to five shops now (in Belfast) and have just opened at Donegall Square," he said.
