Grill’d Opens First Halal-Certified Restaurant

Australian fast-food burger brand Grill’d has officially opened its first halal-certified restaurant in Blacktown NSW, which becomes the company’s 164th restaurant. 

Chief Marketing Officer Ben Goss said the company is committed to allocating to all customers.

"We pride ourselves in welcoming all food tribes to experience 100 percent natural, healthy and nutritious burgers, whatever your dietary requirements are,” said Goss.

The restaurant chain has listened to suggestions made by local communities throughout Australia and believes that being able to offer halal menu options will be a step in the right direction.

The new restaurant will remove bacon from all specific products in a modified menu. No Alcohol will be served on premises, and all meat will be sourced from halal-certified suppliers.

Goss added that the company is excited to welcome new guests to the Blacktown location from surrounding areas and hopes that the experience will not disappoint.

Grill’d was launched in 2004 by Simon Crowe, after he found a gap in the market for “decent burgers.” Crowe envisioned introducing nutritious and enticing meal options in a restaurant setting. The first restaurant was in Hawthorn, Victoria, and by the end of 2006, there were more than 30 restaurants in the Melbourne Area.
