Sizzlers joins the club scene
SO much food, so little time.
Lime and sweet chilli barbecued prawns, lamb shanks, ribeye fillet, grilled barramundi, Malibu chicken, as well as the salad bar, pasta, fruit and dessert - the list went on.
The new Sizzler restaurant in Club Banora which opened its doors on December 6, yesterday invited the traditionally hungry media to the lunch table.
The restaurant is the chain's first new restaurant to be opened in more than 12 years and their first ever in a licensed club.
Sizzler director of marketing Jeremy Ryland said Twin Towns and Sizzler shared a common target market, the 18-44 years family sector, and he was confident that this restaurant would be the first of many such ventures in licensed clubs.
Sizzler started in Los Angeles in 1958 and opened its first Australian outlet in 1985.
Sizzler, he said, had hired more than 80 staff from the local area for the Club Banora restaurant, supported by an experienced management team.
The Tweed restaurant has the same menu as all other 27 Sizzler outlets around Australia.
One of the legal hurdles that had to be overcome was that all advertising for the restaurant had to be directed towards Club Banora members, their guests and bona fide travellers.
The restaurant will be open every day, except Christmas Day, for lunch from 11am-9pm.
