HOT DAMN: Mega menu announced in stunning business comeback

MONTHS spent in limbo are about to come to an end for a Warwick couple who are ready to put pork rolls and chicken chips back in the hands of devoted customers.

After their shock exit from Rose City Shoppingworld, Neil and Helena Parfitt are putting the past behind them as they take their popular business to higher ground.

Rose City Carvery will reopen on Tuesday in the Glennie Heights Store on Horsman Rd.

"We're excited. Nervous, but excited,” Mr Parfitt said.

In a few short months Mr and Mrs Parfitt have transformed the store with mammoth renovations.

A whole new kitchen, plumbing, flooring, new walls and a slick paint job have brought the building into the modern age, but the menu is still full of the age-old favourites Warwick lost when the business closed in July.

Mr Parfitt said burgers would be a new focus for Rose City Carvery and the couple are proud to launch what they claim is Australia's "biggest and best” burger menu.

With 222 "bloody awesome” burgers on the menu, the challenge has been set for customers to try them all.

Real estate auctioneer Stuart Bond, who helped tee up the Carvery's new location, said he was going to start at number one and work his way down the list.

Mr Parfitt said the business would not have been able to make a comeback without the help of friends, in particular Patsy and George Alldridge who bought the shop in a spontaneous bid earlier this year.

"I came to the auction to buy some tools and I walked away with a shop,” Mr Alldridge said.

Mrs Alldridge said her husband had "done good”.

"I reckon it will sky rocket,” Mr Alldridge said. "There's nothing else around here.”

Rose City Carvery Glennie Heights Store will be open from 5am on Tuesday.
