Italian restaurant chain Zizzi is to open two new restaurants, in Manchester and Hereford.
The Gondola Holdings-owned business will open its fifth Manchester restaurant at the end of this month, at 29 Piccadilly.
The new site represents a £1m investment for the brand and can accommodate up to 220 diners.
Meanwhile, Zizzi is also due to open its first restaurant in Hereford on 31 May this year. The 170-cover restaurant on Old Market Street will create 30 new jobs.
The Zizzi brand has just under 140 sites nationwide.
