“1971 Prices!” 20 Cent Hamburgers As Macca’s Reopens Its First Aussie Restaurant

McDonald’s is stepping back to the 1970s and reopening Australia’s first restaurant in Yagoona on Friday, 17 December.

Celebrating 50 years since the very first Macca’s opened its doors in December 1971, the new McDonald’s Yagoona will adopt 1970s prices and reduce the Hamburger to its original 20 cents for a limited time from 11 am – 1 pm on 17 December.

Reflecting the style of the original Yagoona restaurant in its unique décor, the restaurant features a historic timeline, images of the 1971 restaurant and a Happy Meal toy display with iconic toys from across the years.

Andrew Gregory, chief executive officer, McDonald’s Australia, said: “Everything our customers know and love about McDonald’s Australia started at Yagoona, from Happy Meals and birthday parties to first jobs and community contribution.”

“The reopening celebrates 50 years of supporting our customers, people and communities in Australia.”

McDonald’s Yagoona represents a $5 million investment into the local economy and will create 120 jobs across crew, management, barista and maintenance roles.

“The new restaurant will employ people of all ages and experience levels, offer a supportive working environment, outstanding training and development opportunities and the flexibility to suit all circumstances,” said Gregory.

McDonald’s invests more than $40 million into training and development initiatives each year, offering award-winning certifications in the business, retail, foodservice and hospitality sector.

The new restaurant will operate 24-hours and feature a McCafé, dual-lane drive-thru, dedicated delivery partner room and PlayPlace.

In addition to the 20 cent Hamburger, McDonald’s Yagoona will also sell $1 Cheeseburgers and $2 Coffee from 17 December – 7 January as a special promotion for customers.

The original Yagoona restaurant operated from December 1971 – 1994.
