People of Nadi, McDonald’s Nadi Restaurant is open again and even better.

With it’s a soft opening yesterday, it has a more modern concept after undergoing a $2.5 million refurbishment.

McDonald’s Fiji managing director, Marc McElrath said: “The companies that come into the market bring a lot of competition that makes us improve and try to be better.

“We focused on looking at our local customer base and that is our core for the business so we are trying to present modern facilities for all our local customers in Fiji.

“The idea is to bring a new modern family concept, a faster drive through system and cafés to all our restaurants in Fiji.”

Mr McElrath said Nadi is the second restaurant with the McCafe built in store with Lautoka being the first.

The renowned restaurant is committed to Fiji and the economy and employs over 300 people in their business.

The Saunaka based restaurant was schedule to re-open on December 1 but was deferred because of the delay in some equipment.

The official opening, he said, will be next month.

“Having other fast food restaurants brings more variety for our customers. At the end of the day we just focus on our business.”

In the pipe line

Mr McElrath said they are actively looking for new sites and new restaurants and are working on another site in Suva towards Nakasi. Adding on to their list of projects, he said they have set eyes on refurbishing the two restaurants in Suva.

“Nakasi is a growing area with population and a lot of development has been happening in the area.

“Population shift from Suva and Nausori, they seem to be moving towards there. For us we move to where the people are.”

A total of $5 million has been set a-side to build an outlet in Nakasi.

“We are in the final stages of finalising the real estate deal and once that is sorted out we can proceed to the next stage.

“Building a restaurant takes a lot of time. “Not so much the actual construction.

“Putting all the development planning and getting all the approval from the Fiji Roads Authority, Government, etc we need to make sure that all that is in place before we start constructions and takes.”
