Fritzenberger Albany Creek Set to Reopen After COVID-19 Closure

Fritzenberger Albany Creek’s temporary closure is soon to be over as it is slated to reopen on 29 July 2020. This, following a 129-day closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Most of the restaurants, pubs, and clubs in Australia were forced to close after the government issued its highest level of restrictions on the 23rd of March 2020. 

Fritzenberger, which only opened in November 2019, was among the venues that had to close its doors temporarily because of the stricter health safety rules to defend against the coronavirus disease. 

From 29 July, however, the burger and beer place will reboot to welcome dine-in and takeaway customers. The Albany Creek venue will be following COVID health safety guidelines from the government.

“It’s great to get our doors back open to the supportive Albany Creek community, and to welcome our staff back after the Government restrictions closed our venue back in March,” says General Manager Andrew Jeffreys.

Currently, the other Fritzenberger venues at Petrie Terrace and Wilston are open for dine-in, takeaway, and delivery. Another Fritzenberger is also set to open in South Bank. 

On its reopening, Fritzenberger Albany Creek will operate from Wednesday to Sunday, from 12:00 noon up to 8:00 p.m. 

Those opting to dine in are encouraged to make a booking online at
