Spring Farm McDonald’s opens tomorrow

Big Mac lovers will be able to get their fix in Spring Farm tomorrow (Thursday, October 11).

McDonald’s Spring Farm will be open from 5am.

Work started at the site adjacent to the Spring Farm Shopping Centre at 243 Richardson Road, Spring Farm earlier this year.

The $3.9 million venue is the seventh McDonald’s restaurant in Camden.

A McDonald’s spokeswoman said the Spring Farm restaurant would feature a ‘Playland’, party room and digital kiosks.

“It will create approximately 100 new jobs for the local community,” she said.

“We’re delighted to be opening the latest restaurant in Spring Farm, which is a really unique design that we’re sure customers will love.

“The team have been looking forward to this day for months and are excited to be bringing the newest McDonald’s offering to the local community.”

The new restaurant will include a drive-through facility with capacity for 12 vehicles and two waiting bays, a seating capacity of 76 customers and 34 car spaces including one motorcycle space.

The menu will include the fast food chain’s regular range and McCafe.

McDonald’s requested 24-hour operation, however Camden Council voted to restrict the hours of operation to 5am to 11pm.

Last year Camden Council also approved a new KFC at 230 Richardson Road, Spring Farm – beside the proposed McDonald’s location.

This will be the fourth KFC restaurant in a five-kilometre radius – alongside Narellan, Mount Annan and Narellan Town Centre.

KFC also wanted 24-hour operation, but this was reduced to 10am to 10pm.

Modern-day Macarthur has become a haven for major fast food chains with 14 McDonald’s restaurants, 10 KFCs, six Hungry Jacks’, four Red Roosters and two Oportos setting up shop in the region.
