I was thinking what might make sense at the old Little Chef and given that several of these former restaurants have been painted black and reopened as Starbucks Coffee, I thought I'd do a bit of digging online.

A Google search for Starbucks Poynton returns several similar job adverts for baristas required at Euro Garages in Poynton, with the postcode SK12 1NJ. That postcode seems to be based at the Kingfisher Wetherspoon, but perhaps this is just plotted as the 'centre' of Poynton.

Perhaps the Little Chef is undergoing demolition/transformation to a Starbucks, or even a full petrol station forecourt under the Euro Garages brand, it would make sense being the spot where the Poynton Relief Road will pass within the next couple of years.

Just a thought, based only on speculation in the absence of any other updates.

One of the job adverts is on Glassdoor recruitment site at the moment per the link below, duplicated across Indeed, Reed etc.

Thanks, I'm not on Facebook N&G. Does the N&G page give any more information?

The petrol station would be useful for traffic headed south. If it is a Euro Garages forecourt then from reading their website their partner businesses are Starbucks, Greggs, KFC, Subway, Spar and Burger King. Lots of breakfast choices for the Travelodge next door!

Starbucks would be another foreign owned multinational in Poynton - except it is not as it is in Adlington. That is probably why it has not been a local planning consultation issue for the Town Council. Travelodge also market the adjacent lodge through their website as Macclesfield - Adlington.

You don't have to be on it to read it, it's a public group

What a shame, I thought it might have been a Ronald Macdonalds ;)
