The 1373 members of the “Kingaroy Needs A Hungry Jacks” social media group should be celebrating … their dream has come true!
Demolition work has begun on a block at the corner of Alford and Youngman streets in preparation for the construction of a Hungry Jacks outlet.
The new restaurant will be built immediately opposite Kentucky Fried Chicken.
It will offer dine-in, takeaway and drive-thru options as well as a Jack’s Café.
South Burnett Regional Council approved the development application for the 2020sq m block last year, but at the time the fast-food franchise being considered was not known.
Hungry Jack’s spokesperson Scott Baird said the company was thrilled to be opening a store in Kingaroy.
He said the restaurant would open early next year, creating more than 50 jobs.
The Kingaroy restaurant will open early to late, seven days a week.
