New Forrest Highway servos offer range of treats

ROADHOUSESouth Western Times

Two new Caltex service stations, north and south bound on Forrest Highway, are expected to open within a fortnight.

Site owner and developer Security Capital Australia’s director Mark Clohessy said the Midway North Bound and Midway South Bound service centres would also have specialty stores open by mid-October.

The treats for travellers would include the Miami Bakehouse, burger chain Burger Edge, “up-market” chicken vendor Chook Bro’s, Indian food retailer Spices Paradise Express and Sarba’s To Go, which will provide a similar offering to its modern Italian eatery in Lakelands.

Caltex will also roll out its new concept store “The Foodary” which will be the second of its kind in Western Australia.

The new-look convenience store will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner options to go, as well as Boost Juice, locally roasted barista-made coffee and groceries.

Mr Clohessy said he was “thrilled” with the progress and hoped it would become a food “destination” where people would “stop because they want to, not because it is the only option”.

He said the identical service centres would feature charging stations, bathrooms and a dog run and also had potential for other ideas that were “in the planning stages”.
