From Fries to Franchise, This Macca’s Nudgee Superstar Takes Charge!

Nudgee local Lizzy is a friendly face recognised by many. What started as a part-time job to support herself during university is now a professional milestone for her as she takes on the role of restaurant manager at Macca’s, bringing her infectious warmth and passion for the community to the forefront of her career. Know more about her Macca’s journey here.

Three years ago, Lizzy joined the McDonald’s team in Nudgee, hoping to find a means to support her studies. Little did she know that her experience at Macca’s would be so fulfilling that it would steer her towards pursuing a long-term career with the fast-food giant, even after completing her university degree.

Recently, Lizzy proudly graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science. Whilst she had initially planned to continue her education and pursue a master’s degree, fate had different plans for her. An exciting opportunity arose for Lizzy to step into the role of a restaurant manager, and she eagerly seized it without hesitation.

Lizzy’s genuine love for people and her natural inclination to engage with customers have made her a beloved figure at the Nudgee store. 

The location has become a popular pit stop for truck drivers travelling up the Sunshine Coast, and Lizzy has formed lasting friendships with these early-morning regulars. Since her early days at Macca’s, she has greeted them with a friendly smile and a warm conversation, brightening their mornings with her cheerful demeanour.

When asked about her most cherished memories at McDonald’s, Lizzy enthusiastically mentioned her involvement in various charitable endeavours. Last year, she took the initiative to organise a Disney-themed McHappy Day at the Nudgee store, spreading joy among customers whilst raising funds for a good cause.

Additionally, Lizzy has actively supported the work of the Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) by volunteering her time to prepare dinners for families staying at the local Ronald McDonald House.

Lizzy now embarks on a new journey as a restaurant manager at Nudgee’s Macca’s, confident that she will continue to make a difference in the lives of those she encounters.
