As the coronavirus outbreak continues, popular chicken eatery Chargrill Charlie’s has made some important changes that will affect all of their stores.

They made the announcement on Instagram, saying that these changes are effective immediately.

“As of today, urgent changes will be made in the way all our stores will operate,” Chargrill Charlie’s said in the post.

“Please note carefully as these changes are effective immediately.”

The changes include customers only being able to order takeaway food with in-store dining cancelled and no cash will be allowed to be used to pay for orders.

“Cashless payments only. Takeaway only. Strictly no dining in available. Stores will be closed between 2:30-4pm for sanitisation and will reopen for night service.”


“We understand this is not ideal but during this time, it is of prime importance that we put our customers and staff health first.”

Chargrill Charlie’s has 13 stores across Sydney and one in Melbourne. You can find a full list of their stores here.

The number of people infected with coronavirus in NSW reached 134 on Sunday, compared to more than 300 across the country.
