McDonald’s reopens first eatery

McDONALD’S has stepped back to the 1970s and reopened Australia’s first restaurant in Yagoona (pictured).

Reflecting the style of the original Yagoona restaurant in its unique décor, the restaurant features a historic timeline, images of the 1971 restaurant and a Happy Meal toy display with iconic toys from across the years.
Andrew Gregory, Chief Executive Officer, McDonald’s Australia, said: “We are incredibly proud to reopen McDonald’s Yagoona and recognise its important part of our history.
“Everything our customers know and love about McDonald’s Australia started at Yagoona, from Happy Meals and birthday parties to first jobs and community contribution.
“The reopening celebrates 50 years of supporting our customers, people and communities in Australia.
“We look forward to once again serving the local community and welcoming back customers from the 70s, 80s and 90s.”
McDonald’s Yagoona will operate 24-hours and represents a $5 million investment into the local economy and will create 120 jobs across crew, management, barista and maintenance roles.
“The new restaurant will employ people of all ages and experience levels, offer a supportive working environment, outstanding training and development opportunities, and the flexibility to suit all circumstances,” Mr Gregory said.
