A FAST food chain has lodged plans to open its first Scottish restaurant at a holiday park.
American franchise Slim Chickens is hoping to build a new branch at Craig Tara Holiday Park, near Ayr.
Plans have been submitted to South Ayrshire Council, with the firm hoping to change the holiday park’s existing reception area into a restaurant.
Applicants Haven said in the proposals: “The existing reception area within the main complex building at Haven Craig Tara is to be turned into a Slim Chickens restaurant.
“To make this possible a new entrance has been proposed which connects the internal customer area to the main external pathway which runs past the building and to the other site facilities.”
The chain says it offers customers a “fresh, diverse menu that includes hand-breaded chicken tenders, perfectly fried wings, and delicious craft sandwiches.”
It added: “We started with a mission to bring a dose of that southern hospitality to a fast, casual setting—serving fresh handmade food to the communities we serve.”
Slim Chickens has a number of restaurants in the UK, in locations including London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle.
South Ayrshire Council will now consider the application.
We recently told how a major law shake-up could see drive-thru McDonald’s and KFC banned in Scotland.
The Scottish Government revealed its proposals in the revised draft of National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4).
Under the plans, restrictive approaches would be taken against drive-thru developments, recommending a “town centre first” approach.
