Oporto and Carl’s Jr: Now Serving at Rothwell Village

Burger-lovers, rejoice! Two burger chains have opened shop side-by-side, simultaneously on the 13th of December 2018 at the new Rothwell Village development. The former Redcliffe Produce store site is now home to US-based franchise Carl’s Jr and Oporto.

Carl’s Jr

Carl’s Jr’s December opening came just a few days after it began serving to Hope Island residents. The Rothwell Village store is its sixth freestanding drive-thru location in Queensland and its first location on the northside of Brisbane.

The Bansal Group, Carl’s Jr. Queensland franchisor, announced that it will continue its expansion with 15 additional stores to open in QLD this 2019.

Carl’s Jr is now serving its handmade menu classics such as Original Thickburger (chargrilled ⅓-lb 100% Angus Beef patty, melted American cheese, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, lettuce, mustard, mayo, and ketchup); Famous Star with Cheese (Chargrilled 100% Beef patty, melted American cheese, tomato, onions, dill pickles, mayo, special sauce on a seeded bun); and Chargrilled BBQ Chicken Sandwhich (Chargrilled chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, and tangy BBQ sauce on a seeded bun).

Other equally popular choices are Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shakes, premium coffee, and breakfast sandwiches.

Oporto, is also a freestanding drive-thru restaurant at Rothwell Village. Owned by Craveable Brands, this Portuguese-style franchise announced its big expansion plans for Queensland last 2018, aiming to double the number of stores to more than 30 stores over the next three years. After Burleigh Heads and North Lakes, Oporto is now bringing its signature flamed grilled Portuguese chicken and traditional chilli sauce to the good people of Rothwell.
