Coast burger joint to expand across the country

A POPULAR burger joint first launched in Noosa has revealed its plan to position itself as the country's most exciting burger brand.

Betty's Burgers recently announced it will open more than 150 restaurants across Australia, after opening five years ago on the Sunshine Coast.

Retail Zoo CEO Nishad Alani said the expansion would solidify Betty's Burgers as the best of its kind in the country.

"Betty's Burgers is Australia's most exciting burger brand right now," he said.

"We have big, exciting growth plans and the demand from consumers across the country has been overwhelming.

"We're exploring international opportunities which is really exciting for us, given we're seeing many of our competitors in a period of downsizing or consolidating."

Troy McDonagh has been appointed as Betty's Burgers' managing director.

To continue Betty's legacy and support the team during this exciting period of expansion, the brand has appointed Troy McDonagh to the position of managing director.

Mr McDonagh has most recently held a 12-month consultant position with the brand, overseeing the strategy, operations and store rollout of Betty's Burgers nationally.

Bringing to the role 30 years' experience in the food and beverage industry, he said he was excited to lead the team.

"Having worked with the Betty's team for over 12 months, I have been blown away by the passion and dedication the team have for this brand and I look forward to leading the Betty's team to continue to deliver one of the best burger experiences in the country," he said.
