Would you like fries with that, South Cessnock?
McDonald’s Australia has confirmed construction will start on a new restaurant in Vincent Street, which is expected to inject more than $5.8 million into the local economy.
The project’s also predicted to create in excess of 200 jobs.
McDonald’s South Cessnock will be fitted with modern décor and feature a dual lane drive thru and McCafé for its customers, as well as wheel stops containing recycled materials.
Solar panels, a heat recovery water system and LED lighting are additional touches to help reduce emissions and energy use in the restaurant.
“We are excited to start work on a new restaurant in South Cessnock and generate 100 construction jobs, as well as a further 100 operational positions once it opens,” operations manager Matthew Watson said.
“We’re committed to playing an active role in the local community, too.
“That will be through providing jobs, training and development opportunities, as well as supporting charities and groups that are important to our customers and people.
“We look forward to serving up our great tasting, great quality menu once the restaurant opens later this year.”
McDonald’s is now in the process of hiring a variety of crew, barista, management and maintenance roles across the Hunter.
