Hungry Jack's Maitland restaurant is well into a major refurbishment with work underway on the Johnson Street site and an reopening scheduled for Wednesday.
Maitland City Council documents show that a development application for the internal and external upgrade was lodged in 2017 and approved in July of that year.
The application was lodged by Ken Sonjes of Hurstville-based architect firm KAS Architects Pty Ltd.
The work also includes the demolition of old signage and the erection of several new signs around the site.
While a spokesperson for Hungry Jack's would not disclose the cost of the refurbishment, council documents say the total cost of the development is $499,400.
The current premises opened in 1994.
The restaurant's dining area was refurbished in 2014.
The Maitland store employs 75 staff.
It is uncertain at this stage if the refurbishment will mean more job opportunities for the restaurant.
"Due to the size of the Maitland restaurant the site is capable of handling additional capacity," the spokesperson said.
"The drive through is being expanded from a single lane to a dual lane and the car parking bays are being realigned which will create two new waiting bays.
"Also landscaping works are underway to freshen up the site," the spokesperson said.
The refurbishment works started on February 17 with the kitchen and drive through re-opening on March 21.
"Maitland has been a staged refurbishment," the spokesperson said.
"It remains partially open with the full restaurant, including an updated dining area, ready to open on April 8," the spokesperson said.
Restrictions surrounding the current COVID-19 pandemic have been taken into account.
"Given the government's current guidelines on social distancing all Hungry Jack's seating areas are currently closed.
"This will apply to Maitland until dining in restrictions have been relaxed," the spokesperson said.
Over the past 18 months Hungry Jack's has completed approximately 25 major refurbishments to restaurants nationwide.
"The Maitland restaurant has been performing well and this should continue following completion of the refurbishments," the spokesperson said.
