Lovin' mobile Maccas in Hervey Bay

IT HAS been dubbed the first in the world and it will live in Hervey Bay.

After 18 months of hard work, Craig and Melissa Manley could not be more excited about launching their .

That’s right, McDonald’s will now be brought to you – at community events spanning from Gympie to Bundaberg.

The first appearance in the Bay will be at the Carols by Candlelight at Seafront Oval on December 19.

For the first time, however, the van will sell its goodies to customers at Bundaberg today before travelling to Gympie.

All the usual McCafe treats will be available including coffee, muffins, cakes and donuts.

The Manleys bought their first McDonald’s franchise in Brisbane in 1992 and currently own the Bay store as well as one in Gympie and two in Bundaberg.

Mr Manley acknowledged they would be kept on their toes but said they were lucky to have a great staff and a very good general manager based in Hervey Bay.

“Between us we seem to be able to tick all the boxes,” he said.

He said the pair did not skimp on expertise, or cost, and instead of outfitting their own van employed a professional manufacturer.

Mr Manley is looking forward to seeing the public’s response to the Mobile McCafe Van and is sure McDonald’s will be watching its success from the sidelines.

The van will also be used to fundraise across the Wide Bay and can be made available for events.

“It’s all a bit of a journey; we hope it’s popular,” Mr Manley said.

To get in contact with the Manleys you can call the Hervey Bay McDonald’s store on 4124 3555.
