Vuvale Restaurants Fiji, the parent company of McDonald’s Fiji, officially opened a state-of-the-art three-storey business complex at Ena­manu Road, Nadi.

The new building is a part of Vuvale Restaurants’ diversifica­tion process of moving into com­mercal real estate development.

The new building will become the headquarters for Ernst and Young (EY), after the company relocated from Lautoka to Nadi to service the increasing demand for accountancy and audit servic­es in Nadi.

The three-story complex con­structed by Jack’s Manufactur­ing Limited also houses the relo­cated head office of McDonald’s Fiji, Nadi.

Managing director, Marc McEl­rath, said the $3 million invest­ment was a start of more invest­ments in 2021.

He said the new office complex was supposed to be completed in eight months, but dragged on be­cause of the challenges of 2020.

Expansion

“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it had to push to 12-months com­pletion,” Mr McElrath said.

“Initially, the project was sup­posed to be two floors; then it went to three floors.”

A total of 30 workers of Ernst and Young, and 15 workers of Mc­Donald’s Fiji, will be employed in the complex.

“We have decided to move back to Nadi from Suva, to centralise our operations, as we have our distribution center and upcom­ing bakery,” Mr McElrath said.

Designer

The complex was designed by Sanjay Patel, the principal de­signer of Design Hut, and com­pleted by Jack’s Manufacturing Limited (JML), a subsidiary of the Jack’s of Fiji Group of Com­panies.

Jack’s of Fiji group chairman, Dilip Khatri, thanked McDon­ald’s Fiji for giving them such a project.

Jack’s Manufacturing Limited has three other developments to work on in the new year.
