GYG Carousel is incredibly special because we’ve wanted to open a flagship drive thru in Perth for quite some time, we just needed to find the perfect real estate site.”

“Once you see the design and layout it’s easy to see why this is a flagship restaurant for GYG. Our custom Mexican artwork in the entrance is breathtaking and the entire restaurant is genuinely breathtaking. This is more than just fast food, it’s a GYG experience.

We’re serving breakfast, lunch and dinner where guests can drive thru, dine in, takeaway and have food delivered. We’re really looking forward to meeting the locals, they’ve been so good to us already!” said Marks.
