Hospitality group Buzzworks, is branching out from its Ayrshire roots as it announces its new venue in Bridge of Weir named The Coach House, creating around 40 jobs for the town.
Work has already begun on a £1m development that will see the dynamic, family run business transform the former Archies lounge bar and kitchen on Bridge of Weir Main Street with a modern take on a traditional bar and restaurant.
Due to open in the summer, the Renfrewshire venue will be Buzzworks’ first restaurant outside of Ayrshire, but will be the fifth restaurant under the groups’ House brand.
It will join Buzzworks’ collection of nine prestigious venues across Ayrshire including Scotts in Troon, Elliotts in Prestwick, Lido in Troon and The Mill House in Stewarton.
The 40 new recruits will be trained by the Buzzworks skilled launch team.
The interiors of the soon to be Coach House have been designed by Jim Hamilton who has produced many iconic commercial interiors throughout Scotland. The revamped venue will offer all day dining and drinking in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Holdings MD, said: “This is a major step forward in our growth strategy as we make our debut outside Ayrshire. The Coach House will bring a new dining experience to Bridge of Weir and we can’t wait to open the doors this summer. It’s an exciting time for the brand as we continue to extend our portfolio and move into central Scotland.
“The Coach House will be a stunning venue with a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere featuring our trademark contemporary twist. What’s more, we will be providing a number of excellent employment opportunities for the local area and beyond.
“We are recognised as one of The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For and believe in investing in our people, providing industry leading training with a forward thinking approach to work life balance for every member of our staff. We have a host of positions to fill at our new restaurant which, for the right candidate, could be the beginning of a very fulfilling career with the business.”
