Food shortage hurts McDonald's
MCDONALD'S stores across the Tweed and Gold Coast areas have become the next victim of the Queensland floods food shortage crisis.
Chinderah McDonald's store manager Daniel Hayward said they had been forced to close Friday and Saturday and had been running a limited menu since Sunday.
“Deliveries last Thursday were prevented when our distributor in Brisbane went under water,” Mr Hayward said.
“We've been running a limited menu because we lack fresh produce such as lettuce, tomato and sauces.”
The distribution centre in Rocklea sourced produce for the majority of south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales stores with moststores affected.
Mr Hayward said he expected more produce by Thursday with the full menu available on Sunday.
