A new restaurant looks set to open at the former Handmade Burger Co at Trinity Walk.
A banner outside the premises says Jacobs will replace it, selling burgers, waffles and milkshakes.
The details of when the premises will open have not been finalised.
Handmade Burger Co shut suddenly last July after the firm collapsed into administration.
Many other restaurants were saved but Wakefield’s closed with all staff made redundant.
An online Express poll found that almost a quarter of the 1,000-plus people who voted wanted noodle bar chain, Wagamama, to open at the site.
