Latrobe City Council has cleared the way for the construction of a Hungry Jack’s fast food franchise on the corner of Argyle Street and Park Lane, Traralgon.
Latrobe City Mayor, Councillor Brendan Jenkins, said that following discussion of objections to the project, all necessary approvals had been issued, and Council had resolved the issue of the use of some public land, by initiating a lease of the land to the franchise.
"The way is now clear for Hungry Jack’s to open its restaurant in Traralgon, and we look forward to seeing the project under way in the near future, Cr Jenkins said.
"A clear benefit of this project for the citizens of Latrobe is that it will provide a much needed boost to employment opportunities. More than 120 people will be employed by the new Hungry Jack’s restaurant, a mixture of full-timers and casuals, made up of younger and older employees.
"We congratulate Tammy and Jim Fkiaras and family, firstly on winning the Hungry Jack’s franchise, and secondly for being responsible for providing the first Hungry Jack’s restaurant in Gippsland," Cr Jenkins said.
Hungry Jack’s Traralgon franchisee, Tammy Fkiaras, said construction of the restaurant and interviewing prospective staff would commence in the near future.
"My husband and I have lived in the area for over 26 years and during this time we have owned and operated several successful local businesses," Mrs Fkiaras said.
"Through the opening of the new Hungry Jack’s restaurant, we look forward to providing the people of Traralgon with friendly, professional and enthusiastic service."
Hungry Jack’s Marketing Director, Jim Wilson, said he believed a Hungry Jack’s restaurant was a very positive investment in the future of Traralgon.
"Construction of the store will provide building industry jobs, and once the project is finished, more than 120 locals will be employed in either part-time, casual or full-time positions," Mr Wilson said.
"In addition to increasing employment opportunities, the new restaurant will also offer consumers a better choice of food options and will lead to more competition among Traralgon’s hospitality sector," Mr Wilson added.
