Those with previous management positions in McDonalds, Hungry Jacks or similar are encouraged to apply.

Training for the Rockhampton store will take place in existing Brisbane stores for up to eight weeks.

Recruitment for team member positions is expected to begin in the second half of this month.

It is anticipated the store will employ up to 70 people, with six to eight managers and crew.

Works began at the South Rockhampton site in February this year with Hutchinsons Builders Rockhampton and the project is on track to open in October.

It is located across from Red Rooster and KFC and will serve burgers, chips, salad, sides, desserts and beverages.

There will be indoor and outdoor seating, a drive-thru and 17 car parks.

Kele Property Group are developing the site after Carl's Jnr expressed interest in building in the Beef Capital.

The Carl's Jr franchise dates back to 1941 when Carl N. Karcher and his wife Margaret opened a hot dog cart in Los Angeles.

They expanded to four carts and in less than five years, Carl's Drive-In Barbecue opened with hamburgers on the menu.

Over time the chain grew and today there are more than 3515 restaurants in 31 countries around the world.
