PLANS to change the former Frankie and Benny’s restaurant in Stairfoot into a Starbucks chain have been approved by Barnsley Council.
The application, which was submitted on October 28, was approved earlier this month and so the Doncaster Road chain will become the second Starbucks in Barnsley - after the store on the Dearne Valley Parkway.
The new store is set to bring a total of 45 jobs - 17 full-time and 28 part-time - to the borough.
As well as the new Starbucks, the application included the erection of a separate detached building - on the same site - which will be used as a hot food takeaway delivery hub for pizza giants Domino’s.
