Fast food on track
MOTORISTS on Glenlyon Rd will have noticed how quickly Gladstone's new McDonald's restaurant is progressing.
The structure is starting to look like a real building and work is nearing completion.
Licensee Ron Hawkins yesterday said construction of the indoor area had progressed even faster than outdoors, with most equipment and decor installed.
Mr Hawkins said the store was on track to open in either late August or early September. Still to be completed is the car park and the driveway.
He also said there had been a strong response to the restaurant's recruitment efforts, with 110 staff - fulltime, part-time and casual - having been hired.
