Wahlburgers’ first Australian restaurant to open in Sydney’s Circular Quay

The chain is initially slated to open 20 outlets in the country and New Zealand.

Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg’s first Wahlburgers restaurant in Australia will be located in Sydney’s Circular Quay, opening by Christmas.

Located at 7 Macquarie Street, Opera Quays, the maiden outlet is touted for having views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and is expected to seat 250 guests and employ 65 workers.

“I am thrilled to announce Opera Quays at Circular Quay as the location of our first Wahlburgers in Australia. After personally seeing the location, I believe we’ve chosen one of the most iconic venues in the world,” he said in a statement.

Sam Mustaca, CEO of Wahlburgers Australia & United Cinemas, added: “We’re so excited to be working with Mark, Donnie and Chef Paul Wahlberg on opening the first of 20 Wahlburgers across Australia and New Zealand.”

The 20-restaurant plan, slated to take place over the next 5 years, will create over 500 jobs and represents a US$50 million dollar investment.
