Burgers are flying out the door at Gunnedah's only corner store.
The View Street shop has reopened after a two-year hiatus and has already been inundated with customers.
Local Sarah McCann and her family opened the doors last week and are averaging 130 burgers a day.
Ms McCain said the response from the community had been amazing and the opening week was "a high-pressure situation".
The demand was so high that they started to run out of food and Ms McCann clocked up 120 hours in the store.
"It's been unreal," Ms McCann said.
"The first couple of days were very overwhelming. We expected it to be busy but nowhere as busy as it was.
"It was go, go, go."
Ms McCann and her nine staff are settling in this week and "starting to get a bit of a rhythm and know how we want to do things".
She said she had "a lot to live up" because it was such a lively business when the previous operator Robyn Irwin closed the doors in late 2017.
Ms McCann said she helped manage a take-away store in Nelson's Bay for a few years and had planned to one day start open her own.
"It's a big thing to jump into [but] I enjoy hospitality," she said.
The 26-year-old said it was also important for neighbouring locals to have somewhere close by where they could drop in and grab a bite to eat or a coffee, and pick up milk and bread.
"This store used to be the place to stop for simple groceries ... [so] why not create a useful place where people can stop in and get a coffee?" she said.
Ms McCann said she had also put a lot of thought into take-away prices because she wanted to "try and keep it affordable for everyone".
She said locals were "loving" the convenience of a corner store and when the word got out that it would reopen, people would approach her on the street and ask when it was going to open.
"The community has been really supportive," she said.
