Two tasty retailers ready to move on the Capricorn Coast Homemaker Centre
Posted on May 6th, 2021
The eye-catching red and yellow signage of Hungry Jacks will soon light up the Capricorn Coast Homemaker Centre in Yeppoon as Lanskey Constructions kicks off its ‘whopper’ build of both the popular Australian-owned burger franchise and locally established Gus’ Coffee.
With construction set to be completed by September 2021 and openings of both businesses to be celebrated prior to Christmas, the next exciting stage of the Capricorn Coast Homemaker Centre has commenced. 2 Homemaker Drive will be the final lot for construction, accompanying Bunnings, Fresh Trading Co and Reece Plumbing Centre in the centre.
Committed to environmental performance and award-winning project delivery, Lanskey Constructions went up against three pre-qualified tenderers to secure the deal which will recruit at least 100 workers during the construction phase. To date, half of all subcontractors engaged are local.
Australian property developers, Gibb Group, whose vision of a well-rounded and vibrant precinct for the Capricorn Coast community on Yeppoon Road, is thrilled to see its $35-million-dollar development reaching the closing construction stages.
“There has been a lot of hard work put in to establish the Capricorn Coast Homemaker Centre, and it is great to finally get to a position where the first stage is nearing completion” Gibb Group’s Senior Development Manager, Angus Holloway said.
“There is only one remaining 155sqm tenancy available within the expansion and we invite interested parties to get in touch so that we can fill this space with yet another quality supplier who will complement existing businesses and further augment the complex.”
Capricorn Enterprise CEO, Mary Carroll is keen to see these two businesses open alongside Bunnings and Reece, believing they will further increase customer visitation to the Coast’s latest development.
“We are so fortunate to have the expertise of Gibb Group continually bringing these high-quality developments to our destination,” Mary said.
“The combination of home improvements, hardware, coffees and burgers has been proven to be successful with other homemaker establishments and we are certain will entice many locals and visitors to refuel and stay longer at the new retail precinct.”
The 10,626sqm Capricorn Coast Homemaker Centre development, which is the first of its kind in the Livingstone Shire, has already created hundreds of employment opportunities, with a large number of service industry jobs already on the horizon.
“Gibb Group has played a pivotal role in identifying realistic, sustainable, consistent and collaborative solutions that will deliver lasting benefits to our local economies,” Mary said.
Hungry Jacks and Gus’ Coffee will both provide dine-in and drive-through options.
