Northern Ireland pizza chain Little Wing tomorrow opens its eighth restaurant in the province after investing £0.6m in the revamp of an old bank.

And the chain said more venues could be added.

It's created 20 new jobs as part of the opening in Newtownards, at the former Bank of Ireland in Conway Square, bringing Little Wing's workforce to 154.

Luke Wolsey, managing director, said: "After months of planning, we're proud to be opening our newest Little Wing Pizzeria in Newtownards and creating local jobs for people in the area.

"The property, a stunning Grade B listed building in the town centre, situated in the middle of Conway Square, is a perfect location for our eighth restaurant.

"As a thriving company we felt that this was the right time to grow the business again and to expand our opportunities in 2018.

"I am confident that the new branch will be a welcome addition to Newtownards and we are really looking forward to becoming involved with the local area and supporting local causes in the community.

"We are determined to continue to roll out the Little Wing brand across Northern Ireland and further afield and to explore further opportunities to expand our portfolios of restaurants in the near future."

Little Wing is part of the Beannchor Group of hotels, bars and restaurants founded by Bill Wolsey.
