The Lithgow Hungry Jacks outlet is starting to take shape on the corner of the Great Western Highway and Caroline Avenue.
With extensive earthworks under way the store is set to open in time for the Bathurst 1000 weekend in October, according to Isaac Property Developments director Ben Isaac.
"The site is progressing well, with an opening currently programmed in time for race week," he said.
He said there had been some delays in construction due to weather and rock but the hardest part was over.
"We are now coming out of the ground so the hardest part is behind us and we should see the building start to take shape over coming weeks," he said.
Hines Constructions managing director David Hines said, all the trades involved in the Hungry Jacks project were from the Lithgow and Bathurst areas.
"The excavation contractor, sand, soil and gravel supplier, concrete supplier and the timber and hardware supplier are all from Lithgow," he said.
With construction taking form, Hungry Jacks has also started to advertise for job opportunities.
"The new Hungry Jacks will create local jobs not only for the construction phase but as well as long term employment opportunities once the store is up and running," Mr Isaac said.
