Hungry Jack's brings back the Yumbo to mark 50th anniversary

The fast food chain is also opening its 441st restaurant this month.

In celebration of 50 years in Australia this weekend, Hungry Jack’s is bringing back the Yumbo, one of the chain’s most popular items during the 70s.

Available from 20 April nationwide, the returning item features five slices of heated ham and two slices of melted cheese on a sesame seed bun for $3. It will also be launched with a seventies-style commercial.

The return of the Yumbo was announced by founder Jack Cowin during a visit to Hungry Jack’s first restaurant in Perth.

Hungry Jack’s is also opening its latest restaurant at Taylor’s Hill in Victoria this month, which will take their store total to 441 locations nationally.
