Brisbane Buyers Agent Insights – What’s happening in Chermside – American style diner to provide unique amenity if given the go ahead

Share with a friend:

As a top Brisbane buyers agent, we’ve always got our finger on the pulse of the Brisbane property market. Check out what’s happening in Chermside.

A new restaurant in the form of an American-style diner could open at Chermside if it gets council approval.

The restaurant would operate under the Slim’s Quality Burger Restaurant brand, and would be the first of its type in Queensland, with the chain set to open in New South Wales later this year.

It would be situated at 678 Gympie Road in Chermside, on a 2897sq m site also bordered by Wallace Street and Abarth Street.

The 203sq m restaurant will offer dine in, take away, a drive through and something a bit different – with the ability to drive in and park, scan a QR code and order from your car, with the order then being brought out to you. It will have an ‘arch-style’ car park with space for 15 cars.

If approved, it is hoped the restaurant, which will serve burgers, fries, thickshakes and ice cream sundaes, will open in April or May next year.

Residential and commercial buildings on the site would be demolished to make way for the development, which would bring unique amenity to the area.
