Mexican fast food franchise Guzman y Gomez (GYZ) will open its newest drive-through restaurant in Kippa-Ring next week.

More than 90 people have been hired to work at the store, which will officially open on Thursday, June 15 at 7am.

The restaurant will have a dual-lane drive-through and will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.

This is the sixth restaurant the chain has in the Moreton Bay Region, with other restaurants at Albany Creek, Morayfield, North Lakes, Rothwell and Warner.

A restaurant is also scheduled to open in Murrumba Downs later this year.

Franchisees Adam and Samantha Hamilton say they are thrilled to open their first restaurant and provide an array of jobs for locals, including cooks, crew and shift leaders.

“We both have a passion for clean eating and absolutely love Mexican food, so this was the perfect combination of our favourite things. We couldn’t be more excited to bring GYG to the local community,” they said.

“We’ve hired over 90 locals to join the team at Kippa-Ring already and are always looking for new team members who share our same obsession with delicious fresh food to join us.

“If you’re looking for a great place to work with amazing vibes and long-term career opportunities, I encourage you to head to our website and apply today.”

As part of Thursday’s opening celebrations, GYG Kippa-Ring will offer $5 burritos and bowls, free coffee and have a live Mariachi band.

Traffic control managers will also be on site during open day directing vehicles in and out of the restaurant site.

GYG Kippa-Ring is located at 403-406 Elizabeth Avenue and will be open from 7am-10pm.
