More than 20 jobs could be created in Grantham with the opening of a new restaurant.
The Real Burger Co, which currently operates one outlet in Newark, is seeking approval for a change of use for the former Greenwoods clothing store in High Street.
The plans have been submitted to South Kesteven District Council and a decision is expected by July 14.
The company has also applied for a premises licence to servce alcohol.
The Real Burger Co was created just 18 months ago by Leanne Hull and Martyn Kirby.
Miss Hull said that if planning approval is secured it is hoped the restaurant will open in September.
It is expected that up to 26 full-time and part-time staff might be needed. It is planned to create a kitchen, bar and eating areas.
Miss Hull said: “Grantham does not have anything like the Real Burger Co and this was a good opportunity we didn’t want to turn down. We will be leasing the premises.”
