Campbell to run Yamba McDonald's
BALLINA McDonald’s owner and operator Scott Campbell has been named the franchisee for Yamba’s proposed 24/7 restaurant.
If the development application before Clarence Valley Council is approved, Mr Campbell promises it will bring significant benefits to the coastal town.
“Yamba continues to undergo strong growth in both population and housing, so it’s a commercially attractive location for a new McDonald’s,” he said.
Mr Campbell said while he was aware of strong local opposition to the project, he wanted to make it clear to all concerned that McDonald’s was working closely with the council to ensure all appropriate assessments and investigations were completed as part of the development application.
“If approved, the restaurant will be owned and operated by me and it is my commitment to the people of Yamba that I will not only ensure the restaurant is run to the highest standards, but that we are a positive, not negative addition to the area,” he said.
Job creation and training, sponsorship opportunities and potential direct spending with other businesses were among some of the ‘positives’ Mr Scott said the community would benefit from.
A Ballina Chamber of Commerce spokesperson confirmed Mr Scott was a member of his local chamber and an active member of the wider community.
