Westfield Knox has opened a reimagined and relocated food court on level one as part of its $355 million redevelopment.
With sought-after food operators slated to open in stages from Thursday 26 October, the Westfield Knox community will have a variety of options to choose from, including the introduction of popular national brands Mad Mex, KFC, Chatime, Roll’d, Subway and Soul Origin, the addition of A+HK Café, Bonbons Bakery, and New Era Dumplings, and local favourite Royal Donuts.
Westfield Knox Centre Manager, Kristian Nicholls said: “We’re excited to open the new food court at Westfield Knox, giving the community another place to come together and connect over a meal, quick bite or refreshment.
“Today marks another milestone in the transformation for our customers, bringing us closer to our next launch where we’ll see large-format fashion retailers open in our new Australian and international fashion precinct.”
The new food court brings more choice and complements the dining offer already available across the Westfield Knox Ozone precinct and fresh food gourmet marketplace, providing customers with grab-and-go and sit-down casual dining options.
