A new McDonald's will open next week after the restaurant set a date that it would be opening its doors, as well as offering customers a sneak preview of how the venue will look. 

The fast food giant is planning to open its newest addition on Darlington Road in Northallerton on Wednesday, October 11 after constructing the restaurant over the last couple of months. 

In the latest update from the food brand, new images have been released from McDonald's showing the signs going up and large parts of the main building completed, which include the seating booths and completed kitchen.

This update is welcome news for the people of Northallerton, who would previously have faced a 15-minute drive to Leeming Bar to get a Big Mac.

It's also welcome news for the people of Darlington, with only a 25-minute drive for people of the town, while it's also located between the A1 and A19 for commuters.

Previously, McDonald's were recruiting for roles in the new restaurant, while the builders of the venue, Wharton Construction, have opened up about how they have managed to create the building for the new fast food place.

"The building itself is getting craned in two halves.

"It will bring in a lot of new jobs to the area.

"Before this branch was finished people had to go all the way to Leeming Bar. 

"It would have been a 15-minute drive but soon people will have a McDonald's on their doorstep."
