Orange’s newest fast food restaurant has been given the green light.

Orange City Council staff granted planning approval for the venue in March.

Plans were lodged last year for the restaurant to be sited at the former Audi car yard on the corner of Bathurst Road and Endsleigh Avenue.

The approval states the current building will be demolished and a new building to house the

takeaway food and drink premises constructed.

The $1.3 million project was applied for by the Spectrum Retail Group last year.

The DA said the tenant would be a Guzman Y Gomez Mexican fast food outlet.

The Guzman Y Gomez website says it is looking for a franchisee to operate a business in Orange.

It says it is also seeking franchisees for stores in Bathurst and Dubbo.

“A new restaurant typically costs between $1 million and $1.5 million to establish,” the website advises prospective franchisees.

“You will need a minimum net worth of $600,000 to obtain funding from our accredited banks to open a new GYG restaurant.”

The chain was founded in Australia about 15 years ago, with the first store in Newtown in Sydney.

There are more than 100 stores locally, plus 13 in Singapore, five in Japan and one in the US.

The new outlet would be located up the road from another Mexican fast food outlet, Taco Bell, which opened further east on Bathurst Road, last October.
