Gregory Hills residents with a serious hankering for a Whopper won't have to travel far to get one soon.
Dartwest Developments, the development company behind Narellan Town Centre and Gregory Hills Town Centre, has submitted an application to Camden Council for a new fast food restaurant.
The Hungry Jacks, if approved, will be located in the suburb's Turner Road Precinct, adjacent to the Gregory Hills Town Centre.
Dartwest general manager David Taylor said the restaurant fits into the overall strategy for Gregory Hills as a growing suburb.
"We have Woolworths there and 20 other shops including the medical centre," he said.
"Construction is also starting on the new petrol station there next week."
The new Caltex EG service station will be built on the site directly beside the proposed Hungry Jacks restaurant.
Mr Taylor said Hungry Jacks would be another food offering for locals.
"We have a relatively new KFC, Oporto and McDonalds in Gregory Hills," he said.
"But there hasn't been a new Hungry Jacks in the area for years.
"There is the one at Mount Annan and the small one at the service station in Narellan."
This development application seeks approval for the construction of the food and drink premises and associated works at Lot 3, Village Circuit, Gregory Hills.
Car parking, signage, landscaping and associated works are also a part of the proposed design.
The outside area will include a drive-thru facility with temporary parking area and ordering canopy, an associated car park and a loading zone.
The development application states that "the queuing area for the drive-thru provides enough capacity to service peak periods".
The proposed hours of operation will align with operating hours of Gregory Hills Town Centre, which currently trades from 6am to midnight, seven days a week (including public holidays).
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 three Oportos setting up shop in the region.
