McDonald’s Murwillumbah serves 3000 on opening day
ABOUT 3000 customers were served at McDonald's Murwillumbah's opening day yesterday.
Those sales figures are well above Tweed Heads South McDonald's and close to the McDonald's located in the bustling Chinderah Service Centre on the Pacific Mwy.
"I was speaking with my customers and everyone was very excited, they all really liked the building's design," owner John Davis said.
"There were really no negative issues at all and the comments were all great.
"We had a lot of young families through and quite a few tradies."
Mr Davis said it was truly a trial by fire moment for some employees who were working their first day behind the counter.
He added a sincere thank you to the Murwillumbah community for their acceptance.
"Thank you to the community for accepting us and we hope to serve you bigger and better into the future," Mr Davis said.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Big Mac burger was the best seller on the day.
The Johns family from Murwillumbah were spotted enjoying a meal on the opening day and Brothers Sonny and Billy were visibly excited to sit down to a McDonald's meal in their hometown.
The restaurant is built on the site of the old Norco building at 230 Tweed Valley Way, South Murwillumbah.
Mr Davis, who owns three other McDonald's restaurants in Tweed, previously told My Daily News 82 part-time and casual positions were created, as well as eight full-time management jobs.
