Red Rooster stores in Buderim, Sunshine Plaza, Currimundi, Noosa, Burpengary, Moreton Bay and Deception all shut up shop overnight.

Just under 6 months ago, Daily Mail Australia visited a string of Sydney stores during the height of Red Rooster’s initial bankruptcy rumours.

Red Rooster was founded by the Kailis family in Western Australia in 1972 (four years after KFC opened its first local restaurant in Sydney).


There are four Red Roosters in Adelaide – Blair Athol, Arndale, Castle Plaza and Munno Para.
