200 JOBS: Third Carl's Jnr opening in Ipswich
AMERICAN fast food giant Carl's Jr Burger has plans to expand their restaurant footprint even further in Ipswich.
A third restaurant is marked for a suburb outside the CBD as the company behind Carls' Jr Burger in Australia, Bansal Group, prepare to open the second restaurant in the coming months.
The Bansal Group has been tight-lipped on the exact location.
But when it opens, more than 100 staff will be needed to operate the store.
That's on top of the 100 needed for the West Ipswich site, expected to open in June following the US burger giant's successful debut at Redbank Plains.
Applications are open now for the West Ipswich store but those interested could also be considered for the third store.
- Keen to apply?
Bansal Group general manager Shawn Kerr said there was 'always potential in Ipswich'.
He said it would take some time for details to be confirmed with the latest in the string of restaurants expected to enter the market in a couple of years.
Mr Kerr said the third site would not be in the Ipswich CBD but in a suburb.
Carl's Jr Burger is famous in the US for their 'big juicy American burgers'.
