GRAND OPENING: Free stuff up for grabs at new food precinct

IPSWICH diners are fast developing an obsession with American food.

First there was Krispy Kreme and Carl's Jr Burger at Redbank Plains, another Carl's will open in West Ipswich in June and super-sized grocery store Costco will open by the end of the year.

Many companies have the intention to expand and they're strategically placing themselves to cash in on the action.

Redbank Plains' population is experiencing massive growth with annual increases of 10.4 per cent per annum and within 350 metres of the newest development in town, a 750 student school is proposed for the coming years.

The $25 million Redbank Plains Commercial Hub officially opens this week and developer Todd Brown says its new home is no coincidence.

He said the centre provided a strategic convenience option for Redbank Plains' rapidly growing population base.

"Where else in Ipswich can you drive through, grab some donuts, a barista made coffee and a burger or kebab, fill your car with fuel and leave without the hassle that most large shopping centres create?

"After so much planning and construction, this marks a major milestone and brings a much-needed range of services to the Redbank Plains community.

"We're here to ensure the ongoing success of all our tenants and support local business in this fast growing region."
