Huge change coming to Hungry Jacks – and it means that you’ll pick up your burgers and hot chips quicker

  • Hungry Jacks is planning to build whopper new drive-throughs at its stores
  • The burger giant ditched plans to refurbish the inside of their restaurants
  • The coronvirus crisis has seen an increase in home delivery and drive-throughs
  • But dine-in sales have plummeted in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic 

Hungry Jacks are planning to build whopper new drive-throughs so customers can get their burgers faster. 

The new ‘dual lane’ drive-throughs which are still awaiting building approval will be so big they’ll be able to fit 18 vehicles or more at some locations.

The fast food giant ditched plans to spend millions refurbishing indoor dining facilities at the end of last year after analysis revealed less customers were heading inside to chow down in the wake of the pandemic.

But that hasn’t stopped fast-food junkies from buying online and ordering from the drive-through.

‘COVID-19 saw a change in the buying habits of consumers and Hungry Jack’s is responding to customer needs by installing dual drive-thru at many new and existing restaurants,’ Hungry Jacks said in a statement.

‘The changes brought about by last year’s restrictions due to the pandemic, meant more people collected meals to go.

‘They want convenience, great tasting food and quick service. The improvements we are making to our drive-thru ensure that we deliver on all of these.’

The first restaurants in line to get the new dual-lane drive-throughs will be in the Brisbane suburbs of Algester, Annerley and Kedron.

If the project is approved by Brisbane City Council it will open the door for the strategy to be rolled out across Australia.

Hungry Jacks have denied the company is abandoning work to improve the interior of their restaurants.

They claim ‘a rigorous refurbishment program’ is still set to go ahead at a number of stores around the country.
