Retail construction specialist Mainbrace has identified quick service restaurants (QSRs), fuel and logistics as new growth opportunities.
Already enjoying strong relationships on a national basis with Australia’s leading shopping centre owners, developers, landlords and retailers, Mainbrace’s growth plans for the 2022/23 financial year and beyond include forging new relationships with QSR innovators and fuel retailers while expanding its service offering to clients with logistics needs.
Mainbrace recently secured major new appointments with Ampol and Greenfields valued at over $150 million combined.
“We are already experiencing a significant increase in work for fuel/convenience retail and QSR clients, alongside strong growth in supporting our clients with their logistics projects,” says Mainbrace Managing Director Rob Doust.
QSR and fuel work
Mainbrace has recently completed its second and third McDonalds restaurants, in Schofields (NSW) and Wollert (Victoria), and is expanding its relationship with McDonalds to support its new store rollout plan and the re-investment program for its existing network.
In the fuel sector, Mainbrace has been appointed to rebuild the $50 million Ampol Pheasants Nest (NSW) twin service centres on the Hume Highway.
It also recently completed new stores for 7-Eleven at Shepparton (Victoria), BP at Wollert (Victoria), a new Costco fuel station at Lake Macquarie (NSW), and a Costco fuel station extension in Adelaide.
Mr Doust says the company’s strategic growth program will include an increased focus on QSRs and fuel retailing in coming years.
“Along with our new build projects, we are focused on adding value to clients undertaking refurbishment and upgrade programs, in which our dedicated Interiors business plays a key role. It means we can work with our national client base to elevate, enhance and future-proof their assets, which is more important than ever,” he says.
“Of critical importance this year will be to draw on our multilateral retail expertise, the skills and experience of the people across our diverse business units, to help our clients minimise the impact of price increases in positioning their property assets in the best way to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the economic recovery,” he says.
