Durk's Cafe + Eatery enters petrol station space

The cafe brand recently opened in two Ampol dining hall travel centres.

Durk's Cafe + Eatery has entered the petrol station space, recently opening two locations with petrol company Ampol.

The two new sites are located within Ampol’s state-of-the-art travel centres along the Southbound and Northbound stretches of the Hume Highway, Pheasants Nest - just south of Sydney.

According to Gary Blyton, general manager and co-franchisor of Durk's Cafe + Eatery, Ampol approached the brand because it was looking for something a little different.

“Many travellers, including truck drivers, these days are looking for something a bit healthier and in some cases with a homemade element to it rather than just ‘fast food’. Our team was tasked with developing a version of our menu that would cater to this modern-day traveller whilst also able to be operationally effective in this type of location. Over 40,000 vehicles per day use the Hume Highway so for us it was a great opportunity. Now that these sites are operating above expectations we will make them available to potential franchisees. We have several other new locations planned for NSW so it’s certainly exciting times ahead,” Blyton said.

Durk's Cafe + Eatery is a 100% Australian-owned and operated cafe franchise dedicated to providing high-quality, nutritious meals. With a focus on offering a healthier alternative, Durk's Cafe + Eatery is operated by highly experienced hospitality franchisors who’ve been in the Australian market for more than 20 years.
