Late night fast food customers can be catered for on weekends without forcing them to use the drive-thru, according to Hungry Jack’s owner, Carrie Oakley.

Ms Oakley said the move to open the doors had allowed customers to use the bathrooms and also reduced the danger of people trying to get served at the drive-thru window on foot.
