McDonalds Warragul – Outgrown its location?

An opinion piece by Wendy Mather.
Conditions during the September 2011 School Holiday break have raised a rather important question – Who is responsible for the Warragul McDonalds site and its positioning?
McDonalds is currently on a ridiculously small site, not allowing for their many visitors during the peak periods. Nor is it easily accessible to the custom of drivers or passengers of larger vehicles who would certainly carry the good news of the Golden Arches to be found here in Warragul.
Warragul is not such a small place anymore. We are flanked by Berwick (with three known McDonalds sites) and Moe (conveniently placed very near the freeway); so why should Warragul’s restaurant remain so small and out of the way?
Surely the mayhem and chaos of the holiday period could be avoided by the business being placed on a larger site. More registers could be opened to welcome the continually growing crowd, and even the McCafé could be made larger to handle the now higher demanding clientele seeking a quick Cappuccino or Latte. There could also be space for more tables and seats in the dining room and even a larger kiddie’s play area with seating for parents. Outside seating I know would be an extravagance but a great thing to have, and bigger and better parking would be a huge improvement on the currently almost non-existent area.
It would also mean growing employment positions for even more people; our young students for example.
With Christmas Holidays soon to be upon us something needs to be done.
