Oodles Chinese, the Indo Chinese concept, is to open its first store in the North West, in Bolton.

The brand which already has four branches in the Midlands, will open on Derby St.

The restaurant serves Indo Chinese food with customers choosing their starters and main dishes which are filled in small, medium or large boxes.

The opening is part of a growth strategy targeting 10 more openings by 2020.

In the next six weeks, it will open stores in Luton, Coventry and Nottingham.

Mohammed Umar, director, said: “We are delighted to finally open the doors to our first store in the North West and really excited to begin this new journey in Bolton.

“We want Derby St to be our flagship store in the North West and the first of a long chain in the region creating jobs for the locality.

“We are now actively looking for new sites and franchise partners in the region and across the UK to help us achieve our expansion plans.”
