WHY MILKY LANE?
MILKY LANE is the restaurant story of dreams, we are able to facilitate 110 guests and are located in the heart of Bondi Beach. Our very first year’s turnover was $2.2 Million which is just one aspect reflecting our five star service, love for quality food and dedication to customer satisfaction. In a world where social media is everything, Milky Lane dominates the burger and dessert pages with over 60,000 followers collectively and an interaction that is exciting. We can think of no one better to share our drool worthy posts with than you!
Milky Lane is more than ‘just a great burger,’ it’s a complete experience for all your senses that has taken over 12 months for us to create. Our customers drive and fly in from across Australia to experience the feel, taste and one-of a kind atmosphere that is carefully structured in terms of taste but very comfortable and laid-back in terms of settings. It is all about being the Grammy Award winner of burgers, desserts, and cocktails- being fresh, fun, creative, and standing out.
Milky Lane has heavily invested in it’s product, training systems and operation procedures. We have the people and product to make Milky Lane Franchise a great success because we have a proven model.
