Australian fast food chain finds its way back to Australia

A fast food outlet that’s been in Australia for more than 40 years has returned to the country’s capital, Canberra.

The chain, which has more than 600 stores across the country, is owned by the family who opened the first one in Sydney in the 1970s.

Coffee chain Cafe La Boulangerie reopened last year, with an expansion plan to 10 stores in 2019.

Its main competitor, a fast food restaurant called The Big Bite in Melbourne, was closed in April due to the coronavirus outbreak.

But it is hoped the return of the La Bougers to Canberra will provide a boost to local businesses.

“The return of La Bouchier to Canberra is a very positive step,” Tim O’Brien, chairman of the Australian Retailers Association, told the ABC.

In the last four years, cafes and fast food restaurants have been closing at an alarming rate in the state.

Last week, the Queensland Government announced it was halting all restaurant licences and licences would be cancelled across the state, which is home to more than 1.4 million people.

With temperatures soaring and power cut off, many people have taken to the streets of the state to protest against the government’s plans.

And on Thursday, the Government said it was considering imposing a lockout law in the capital.
