Granada creates 2,500 new jobs

GRANADA, the media and hotels group, is to create over 2,500 jobs in its roadside catering and Travelodge businesses as it expands its leisure operations.

The news came as a Granada statement at its annual meeting yesterday said current trading was "very positive". However, the company dismissed speculation that it might target Whitbread as an acquisition, stressing that the company's priority was organic growth.
