Hungry Jack’s opens at Australia's Gold Coast Airport

Avolta has opened its sixth and final new food & beverage outlet, Hungry Jack’s, in the domestic terminal at the Gold Coast Airport.

As part of the airport’s recent redevelopment project, this opening marks Avolta’s commitment to elevating the food & beverage experience for both business and leisure travelers. The company said Gold Coast Airport – one of Australia’s leading tourist destinations and the country’s sixth-busiest airport – will benefit from Avolta’s role in its ongoing transformation and redevelopment as the company continues to find ways to make travelers happier.

The openings at Gold Coast Airport represent Avolta’s newest location in Australia. The stores opened for business in succession throughout 2023, include Avolta’s proprietary brand, Artisan Kitchen and Bakery offering bakery and savory selections while Fresh features smoothies, freshly pressed juices and healthy salad bowls for a lighter touch. Asia Street Cooking offers a selection of Asian cuisine, including favorites Vietnamese Banh Mi, Pad Thai and a selection of Laksas and stir-fries.

Avolta has also opened the chicken schnitzel-based brand Schnitz, the brand’s first in an airport environment. In addition to these national brands, the company brings another proprietary brand with an international flavor, with Two Tigers offering fresh and healthy dining options including sushi, sashimi and Japanese snack items. 

Hungry Jack’s opened in March, with a menu including flame-grilled Whopper, succulent chicken menu items, plant-based burgers brekky wraps and barista-made coffee.

David Mackay, Avolta’s Managing Director Southeast Asia and Oceania, said, “The opportunity to collaborate with Gold Coast Airport for a new vision and a transformed food & beverage experience is an exciting step for the company and our team. We see this as an affirmation of our commitment to growing our footprint in the Australian airport market, and we cannot wait to welcome guests to our new stores. I am very proud that this exciting development evolved in line with our wider strategy for the Asia Pacific region and will undoubtedly make travelers happier in this corner of the world.”

Adam Rowe, Queensland Airports Limited Chief Commercial Officer, commented, “This new partnership is about elevating the experience of our customers travelling through Gold Coast Airport. We are in the final stages of delivering a A$500 million package of works to upgrade the whole airport precinct. These six new stores in our domestic terminal add to the overall modernization of the airport and provide our customers with more choices.”

Gold Coast Airport’s redevelopment and expansion of the Domestic Terminal is part of an overarching plan to improve passenger experience and showcase the Gold Coast region to tourists.
