Hungry Jack's opens doors
YOU have to be the kind of person who enjoys the feeling of mayonnaise sticking your fingers together and trickling down your arm.
I am one of those people and my first visit to the new Hungry Jack's did not disappoint my saucy desire.
Hungry Jack's, on the corner of Albion and Wood streets, is the newest addition to Warwick's culinary tapestry and Saturday marked a ‘dry run' for the 60 new employees under the careful guidance of district manager Belinda Maguire.
“(Saturday) was a chance to invite special guests and the family and friends of the crew so they could get to know where everything is and make sure all the equipment was working,” Ms Maguire said.
“There are only two Hungry Jack's restaurants in Queensland with a double-lane drive-through and Warwick is one.
“We would like to thank Mission Australia Employment Agency who helped us with training and office space while the restaurant was built.”
Today marks the restaurant's first official service day but the Wood Street entrance will be closed while stormwater pipes are laid.
A Main Roads spokeswoman said departmental staff recently inspected the access point to the Hungry Jacks site at Wood Street and determined the stormwater provision did not meet departmental standards.
“The department advised Hungry Jacks that not enough material had been allocated for coverage of the town's stormwater pipe,” the spokeswoman said.
“A minimum cover is necessary to avoid damage to the pipes. It is also necessary to ensure a safe and functional road environment for motorists and pedestrians.”
