An expanding Mexican street food chain is opening a new burrito bar in Durham, creating a host of new jobs.
Zapatista Burrito Bar is opening its third restaurant in the region following a deal sealed by Newcastle-based Naylors’ retail department.
The growing food firm has signed a 15-year lease on a new base at 87 Elvet Bridge, Durham, which will be the chain’s first site outside of Newcastle city centre.
The North East-owned business opened its first restaurant at Ridley Place in Newcastle in 2012 before going on to acquire a second base in Grainger Street four years ago.
The company currently employs 40 staff and is expecting to create around 15 new jobs as a result of its Durham opening.
