Flagstone to be home to new McDonald’s restaurant
Construction has started on a 4,455 sqm site that will include a 498sqm signature McDonald’s restaurant, due to open in December 2019 at our Flagstone community in Jimboomba, QLD.
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 CEO and Managing Director 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, Chemist Warehouse, Vet Love and Snap Fitness.”
For the 7,000 people who already live at Flagstone, this is a huge convenience and a great step forward. We want to build a sustainable and self-contained local economy here where local people have a real opportunity to live and work close to home.
McDonald’s Head of Property in Queensland Darren Henry said: “We’re really excited to bring the latest McDonald’s restaurant to Flagstone and are looking forward to supporting the local community with employment opportunities and sponsorships.
An IGA-anchored shopping centre, health centre and childcare facility have opened this year with a Coles supermarket currently being built on a 1.8 hectare site next door to McDonald’s.
