A TAXI firm has opened a new office in Malton.

Kappa’s Cars has new premises at 6-8 Railway Street and is open 24 hours with a fleet of up to five vehicles.

The business is run by Glenn Lewis, known locally as Kappa, hence the business name, and co-owner David Collins.

Glenn said: “We now have a central office in Malton where customers can sit in comfort if they require a taxi, or they can call us on our new number.”

Glenn and David both live locally and they have a team of drivers and vehicles, including a Mercedes saloon car, two eight-seater mini-buses and a vehicle suitable for customers who may struggle with access in and out of the minibus vehicles.

Tobias Burckhardt, surveyor with Fitzwilliam Malton Estate, which owns the premises, said: “We wish Glenn, David and all the staff at Kappa’s Cars every success with their business venture, and given the excellent location of their business offices in Railway Street, we foresee Glenn, David and the team clocking up the miles.”
