McDonald’s steps back in time with reopening of first Australian restaurant
The Yagoona store will adopt 1970s prices and reduce the hamburger to its original 20 cents for a limited time on 17 December.
McDonald’s is stepping back in time with the reopening of their first-ever Australian restaurant in Yagoona.
The new McDonald’s Yagoona store will adopt 1970s prices and reduce the hamburger to its original 20 cents for a limited time from 11am – 1pm on 17 December*.
Reflecting the style of the original Yagoona restaurant, which operated from December 1971 to 1994, the new outlet features a timeline, images of the 1971 restaurant and a Happy Meal toy display with toys from across the years.
“Everything our customers know and love about McDonald’s Australia started at Yagoona, from Happy Meals and birthday parties to first jobs and community contribution,” McDonald’s Australia chief executive officer Andrew Gregory said in a media release.
“The reopening celebrates 50 years of supporting our customers, people and communities in Australia. We look forward to once again serving the local community and welcoming back customers from the 70s, 80s and 90s.”
McDonald’s Yagoona also represents a $5 million investment into the local economy and will create 120 jobs across crew, management, barista and maintenance roles, the chain added.
The new restaurant will also operate 24 hours and feature a McCafé, a dual lane drive-thru, dedicated delivery partner room and PlayPlace.
In addition to the 20 cent Hamburger, McDonald’s Yagoona will also sell $1 Cheeseburgers and $2 Coffee from 17 December to 7 January.
Following the opening of Yagoona, McDonald’s said it now employs over 39,000 people across 326 restaurants in NSW.
