Macca's to inject about $139m into economy by opening 19 new restaurants, reinvesting in stores

It will reinvest in more than 80 existing restaurants in 2022.


Macca's Australia declared that it will inject about $130m into the economy as it will open almost 20 new restaurants and reinvest in more than 80 existing restaurants this year.


So far, the fast food chain opened eight new restaurants in Queensland, New South Wales, and Tasmania in 2022 and seeks to open 11 additional restaurants before the end of the year.


Aside from this, McDonald’s will also reinvest in more than 80 of its existing restaurants in 2022 by "enhancing the design, efficiency, and functionality of drive-thru, McDelivery and restaurant dining rooms to provide an even better experience for customers."


The reinvestment and opening of new restaurants will create 4,000 new job opportunities for the construction and restaurant industry.


David Howse, Chief Support Officer, McDonald’s Australia, said, “Every new restaurant injects approximately $5m into the local economy and creates 100 jobs during construction and a further 120 jobs once the restaurant is operational. 


“We are focused on opening new restaurants in residential growth corridors that are close to transport and infrastructure in both metro and regional locations," he added.


Howse added that they are working on creating eco-friendly initiatives in its new restaurants by using "LED lighting, solar panels, heat recovery water systems and recycled content for wheel stops and dining room tiles."
