The first branch of NKD Pizza in England has arrived in Burnley this week after it officially opened its doors on Monday.

The store opened on Trafalgar Street at 11am and is the first in a six-store deal signed by the franchise owners.

The owners of the franchise said: “We are excited to open the NKD flagship store here in Burnley and we look forward to welcoming everyone.

“We will offer top-quality products and great value for money and our friendly team are ready and happy to help in any way they can.”

NKD Pizza, which operates in other countries, is made from an ancestral dough using ten grains including buckwheat, quinoa and brown rice.

The more typical white dough will also be available should customers prefer it.

The pizza names and flavour combinations will also be slightly different to what they may expect, making it a new food experience for the town.

Grant Clouston, the company's global chief executive, said:“We are currently working on an all-new NKD Pizza look, feel and taste and the Burnley franchise will launch with this new and exciting direction."

“We are delighted to have the local franchise owners on board and look forward to working alongside the Burnley business community, which has shown innovation and resilience during this period.

“We hope people in Burnley enjoy what we have to offer.”

The pizzas will only come in one size and customers can choose either to collect from the Trafalgar Street premises or have them delivered.

Delivery is available within a five-mile radius of the restaurant, which is offering a discount to new customers.

All pizzas ordered online with the code GETNKDBURNLEY and collected from the store – until the end of August - will cost £4.99.
