More than 155 jobs created in Rockhampton region McDonald's
NEW research has shown more than 155 jobs have already been appointed in the Rockhampton region since the introduction of Create Your Taste.
And the local McDonald's restaurants are still looking to hire another 20 to 30 people.
New employees are required for a variety of newly created front-of-house and kitchen roles at Macca's Rockhampton, Gracemere, Yeppoon, Glenmore, Rockhampton North and Rockhampton Stockland.
Rockhampton North and Stockland licensee Marc Smoorenburg says with the launch of the digital kiosks and new menu there will be greater investment in the region.
"With increased capital expenditure and wage costs, McDonald's is placing significant investment into the local community."
McDonald's Glenmore and Yeppoon licensee Anton Gazal says he is excited to add a gourmet burger option to the region where customers have complete control in building a burger with flavour combinations that suit their taste.
"We see plenty of patrons already customising their orders, either by requesting additional sauce or removing pickles. Create Your Taste takes this one step further, placing all of the control in our customer's hands," said Anton.
McDonald's Rockhampton and Gracemere licensee Gary St George said it's an exciting concept for Macca's.
"Customers have commented that they never thought McDonald's would do something like this. It's very exciting," he says.
