AF­TER months of an­tic­i­pa­tion, Oporto has opened in Toowoomba.

It is the first out­let to op­er­ate out of The In­ter­sec­tion at the cor­ner of Alder­ley and Ruthven Sts.

Oporto served its first cus­tomers at 10am yes­ter­day, with more than 100 cus­tomers served in the first hour of trade.

It is home to fresh grilled chicken and burg­ers.

It is also fa­mous for its iconic Bondi Burger and leg­endary chilli sauce.

Toowoomba fran­chisee Reddy Goguri said he was thrilled to be able to serve grilled chicken to res­i­dents.

“I have been part of the com­mu­nity for four years and have been wait­ing for this day for 16 months,” he said.

“I used to work at Oporto as a crew mem­ber and al­ways hoped to open my own store.

“We re­ally want to in­tro­duce spicy food through our chicken and burg­ers.”

The Toowoomba store is de­signed with a fresh look and feel to suit the Queens­land lifestyle.

It also serves al­co­hol.
