REVEALED: New takeaway shop opening at Stockland Gladstone

A SUSHI takeaway shop exclusive to Central Queensland is expected to open early next month in Kin Kora.

Rice To Meet You has moved into the space next to Smokemart and Kmart at Stockland Gladstone.

Rice To Meet You owner Jason Gao said he decided to take the opportunity to expand the business as his other two CQ stores in Emerald and Yeppoon were becoming "very popular".
