Tamworth’s fourth McDonalds restaurant to open Wednesday | The head of the daily newspaper in the North

news, latest news,

McDonald’s has become one of Tamworth’s largest private employers, employing 500 people in the same week the company prepares to open its fourth outlet. Franchisee Adrian Sippel said the new North Tamworth restaurant will employ around 120 people. “We need about 120 more [staff] by restaurant. It’s a lot of people, “he said.” A lot of people think McDonalds, we only hire kids. I guess about 45 percent of our workforce is over 18. A lot of people have to work during the day, during school hours, at night, at night. “It’s not just the children, there are also a lot of adults who have opportunities. We have a very diverse workforce from all parts of the community.” READ MORE: That local workforce is set to grow, with the 81-year-old company set to open its fourth Tamworth restaurant on Wednesday. The builders were putting the finishing touches on the yard this weekend. Mr. Sippel, who owns all four Tamworth locations, as well as McDonald’s in Gunnedah and Scone, started with the business at the age of 15. He has worked there for 23 years. He said the site, located at 114-122 Peel Street in North Tamworth, across from Northgate Mall and the Jack Woolastan Oval, was the perfect place to enjoy the growing city. Tamworth’s Blueprint 100 plan is for major housing development in Moore Creek. “Being there during the construction phase is a very busy part of the city that is not particularly well served for cafes, ready meals and travel stops and amenities,” he said.

Tamworth Regional Council approved the new development – with 92 conditions – in December 2020. It was approved despite concerns about its effect on waistline in a city that already holds the record for being the largest in the country. Its hours of operation will be limited from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. for the first six months, before a noise validation assessment is completed. There are no immediate plans for a fifth McDonald’s in Tamworth. “I’m excited about what Tamworth has to offer.” The Blueprint 100, believe it or not, to reach 100,000 people, we will need to feed those people and provide jobs for 100,000 people. “Rather, it is a sign of confidence that McD wants to come to Tamworth and invest in our community. We see Blueprint 100 as something that is achievable and we want to be a part of it.” McDonald’s already has restaurants in East, South and West Tamworth. Hungry Jack’s announced plans for a second outlet in October. If it obtains planning approval from Tamworth Regional Council, the store will occupy land at 248 Bridge Street, Tamworth. The city also has two KFCs, two Red Roosters, a Porto and a Taco Bell. Our reporters work hard to provide local and up-to-date news to the community.
