Caprinos to Open at Winsford Cross!

AWARD-WINNING pizzas and pasta will soon be served in Winsford.

Caprinos is ‘delighted’ to be opening a new store in the town centre next month.

The company has transformed the former William Hill betting shop in Jubilee Way into a restaurant and takeaway.

Winsford Town Council has welcomed the development which also won approval from council planners.

Mumtaz Hussain, manager of Caprinos in Winsford, said: “We can see that Winsford town centre is redeveloping and are delighted to open our new store in the town.

“We offer an exceptional variety of pizzas for delivery and takeaway and are sure our new customers in Winsford will enjoy our food and keep coming back for more.”

This national pizza company is the first of many new businesses set to move into Winsford Cross as part of a multi-million pound regeneration project.

The council has committed more than £11 million of its own capital funding and was awarded Future High Streets Funding from the Government to redevelop the site.

Ambitious plans to redevelop the town centre have been approved and work is set to start later this year.

Cllr Richard Beacham, cabinet member for inclusive growth, economy and regeneration, said: “Winsford Town Centre is a dynamic environment at the moment; lots of work is going on behind the scenes which will result in Winsford Cross getting a whole new look and lease of life.

“The decision by Caprinos to set up business here is an indication that Winsford is a town on the move and together with the many great businesses already here, we expect even more businesses to become attracted to Winsford as work on the town centre progresses.”

Caprinos opened its first store in 2014 and now has 72 branches across the country.

The national brand has won numerous awards for its pizza and pasta and was the Pizza Takeaway of the Year at the Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards in 2020.

The company was more recently voted as one of the top five best restaurant chains in Britain at The British Takeaway Awards.
