COOKING up a good rump steak for customers in the Beef Capital was always going to put pressure on a new restaurant, so running two during Beef Australia 2015 is going to keep staff on their toes.

But Ribs and Rumps Rockhampton franchisee Salesh Ramswarup is up to the challenge.

For the week of Beef Australia, Ribs and Rumps will be operating its current establishment in the Empire building, while also running a restaurant onsite at Beef - out of the back of a B-double truck, no less.

The portable restaurant includes a cold room, full commercial kitchen, fully licensed bar, generators as well as 300 chairs and 30 tables.

The truck is coming from Longreach for the occasion, where it usually caters for schools in the area.

In total, the franchise will cater for 550 seats for both lunch and dinner, with breakfast also available at the Beef site.

Extra staff will be coming from Gladstone and Brisbane to assist Rockhampton staff.

Salesh said they were very thankful that people in Rockhampton had supported them so well since they opened late last year.

"Some people have been over 70 times… we have regulars who come two to three times a week," he said.

"The pressure was on us, everyone's an expert on beef in the Beef Capital.

"We're trying to be the benchmark."

Salesh also said last year the Ribs and Rumps group sold 16,000 tonnes of ribs.

The Ribs and Rumps truck will be based at the showgrounds throughout Beef Australia, near the XXXX Cattleman's Bar.
