Carl’s Jr to open soon in Armstrong Creek
BURGER lovers in Geelong and surrounds will soon have a new option to choose from, with the region’s first Carl’s Jr store set to open its doors in the first week of July.
Located in the Armstrong Creek Town Centre, the Carl’s Jr outlet has created about 80 jobs in Greater Geelong and the Surf Coast.
Carl’s Jr Armstrong Creek franchisee Mark Creelman held a VIP night on Thursday last week to give the lucky invitees a first bite of the Carl’s Jr menu ahead of the opening.
City of Greater Geelong councillor Cr Ron Nelson officially opened the store.
“It’s fitting that Carl’s Jr has chosen Armstrong Creek as the location for its first store in Geelong,” he said.
“Currently home to around 20,000 people, Armstrong Creek will eventually house 55,000 to 60,000 people.
“Firing up a grill and serving customers is a great way to start out your career, and I want to thank Carl’s Jr for creating jobs for young people as they start their working lives.”
There are several Carl’s Jr stores in metropolitan Melbourne and one in Ballarat, as well as across Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia.
Founded in the United States in 1941, the chain now has more than 3,000 stores worldwide.
