Cult fast-food phenomenon Five Guys is opening its first Australian store on 20 September 2021, bringing the iconic brand of burgers and fries Down under. The Australian Five Guys launch will kick off in the outer regions of Sydney, with the lucky suburb of Penrith copping the inaugural launch store. Get ready, the burger business just got a little more interesting.
Located at 123 Mulgoa Road in Penrith, the new Five Guys Australia store is set to deliver all the same favourites global fans have come to love. In addition to offering 250,000 different burger variations, Five Guys also hands out free toppings for burger lovers to customise their meal, making it a proverbial choose-your-0wn-fast-food-adventure. While burgers headline the new menu, you can also expect to see hotdogs, fries (both in the Five Guys and Cajun-style), traditional sandwiches, beers and over 100 different milkshake combinations.
Needless to say, the Australian edition has been a long time coming. After taking America by storm in the early 2000s, the family-owned business took the model overseas, launching massive chains across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. A chance report last year signalled the brand was making its way Down Under and now the grills are finally heating up. According to Robby Andronikos, Brand Manager of Five Guys Australia, more expansion is on the way.
“It’s been an incredibly fun journey to bring the Five Guys opening to this point. A massive team effort from FIVE GUYS, Seagrass BHG and the multiple Australian producers and businesses working in partnership to launch this brand with the exacting standards required,” Robby Andronikos, Brand Manager of FIVE GUYS Australia said. “I’m excited to finally be able to open the doors to our first store in Penrith with many more Australian FIVE GUYS restaurants on the horizon already planned.”
The Penrith Five Guys store opens on September 20 and operates from 11am to 10pm daily. You can check out the website and menu via the link below.
