McDonald's - We're Lovin' It
Construction starts on new McDonald's restaurant in Flagstone
Dozens of jobs will be available when a new McDonald's opens its doors in December in Flagstone.
The golden arches will soon be popping up in the commercial precinct of South-East Queensland’s emerging new satellite city, with construction starting on the fast food giant's 226th restaurant in Queensland. McDonald's acquired a 4455sq m site to build a 498sq m signature restaurant with drive-through.
The new restaurant is expected to hire 100 people, adding to a wave of more than 550 local jobs that have been created by early commercial buy-in at Flagstone.
Peet chief executive Brendan Gore said commercial take up at Flagstone was running well ahead of targets.
"Flagstone is one of the biggest greenfield residential developments in Australia and major retailers can see the long-term value in a development of this scale so they are keen to establish an early presence," he said.
"McDonald's is renowned for the great work it does to support local communities so we are delighted to welcome them to Flagstone alongside other great brands like Coles, IGA, Dominos, BWS, Terry White, Vet Love and Snap Fitness. For the 7000 people who already live at Flagstone, this is another big convenience and a great step forward."
