Northern Beaches, Ooralea on cards for fave city eatery

THE Zambrero food truck has been a hit in many of Mackay’s smaller towns.

And now the restaurant’s owners are thinking about expanding beyond the city centre.

There are already two venues, one on the corner of Gregory and Gordon Streets and one in the Caneland Central food court.

But Mackay Zambrero owner resident Peter Quinn said they were now scoping out suitable sites for a third Zambrero store.

“We want to expand out to the Northern Beaches with a plan for a drive-through,” he said.

“Two years ago, I didn’t think it was busy enough to go out there but Northern Beaches is pumping.

“Every time I go out there, there’s something happening.

“Then if we can get that, after the Ring Road settles down, we’ll have a look at the Ooralea, Paget area and maybe do a fourth.”
