AN American fast-food chain in Colchester has revealed plans to stay open late into the early hours of the morning.

Wendy’s, at the Northern Gateway Leisure Park, is hoping to provide "late night refreshment” seven days a week after applying a premises licence.

If Colchester Council approves the restaurant’s application, Wendy’s will be able to provide the service between 11pm and 2am, Monday to Sunday.

The business opened on July 18, 2023, and serves an array of tasty burgers, chicken nuggets, drinks, and at the £65 million retail park.

The Gazette previously visited Wendy’s and enjoyed a meal last year.

According to the Public Notice Portal, Wendy’s Restaurants of UK limited applied for the licence on February 5.

Any feedback regarding the application must be made in writing to Colchester Council’s licensing team by March 5.
