Bucking Bull and Skewerz Kebab arrived in Mandurah Forum Centre

Both brands have opened in the centre’s food court, side by side, taking the total number of Aktiv Brands outlets to 40.

“We’re very excited to have such a prominent presence in Mandurah Forum,” said Aktiv Brands executive director Dean Vella. “We had a remarkable response to both stores, serving nearly 4,500 customers collectively in the first 7 days.”

“Bucking Bull is a boutique carvery offering specializing in slow cooked and roast meats, whilst Skewerz Kebabz is a modern kebab outlet inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean,” Vella said.

Mandurah Forum Centre Manager Jacqueline McKenzie said she was excited to welcome Bucking Bull and Skewerz Kebabz to the transformed centre. “Our new indoor-outdoor food court has provided the region with an exciting new destination for dining, entertainment and relaxation and we’re thrilled to provide these two excellent quality dining options to our customers."

The wider Perth region is a key focus in Aktiv Brands’ expansion strategy, with plans for both brands to further grow in the casual dining market.

“Last year we launched the very first licensed Bucking Bull at Watertown Brand Outlet Centre in West Perth, and a sit-down, casual dining model for Skewerz Kebabz is currently in development,” Vella said. “Most shopping centre food courts across Perth have either a Bucking Bull or Skewerz, if not both, so we’re looking to diversify our models to accommodate future growth.”

Bucking Bull and Skewerz Kebabz are located in the food court at Mandurah Forum, 330 Pinjarra Rd, Mandurah WA 6210. Aktiv Brands now has 40 outlets located across Perth, Brisbane, Townsville, Melbourne and regional NSW.
