Jamie Oliver chain fails

Taranaki Daily News - - Business -

Jamie Oliver’s dream of buy­ing back the farm in Aus­tralia is over. The Jamie Oliver Restau­rant Group (Aus­tralia) col­lapsed on Mon­day, with the com­pany be­ing placed in the hands of vol­un­tary ad­min­is­tra­tors less than 12 months af­ter the Bri­tish celebrity chef vis­ited Aus­tralia to re­launch the six lo­cal restau­rants bear­ing his name. Oliver bought them from an­other failed com­pany in March 2017. Jamie’s Ital­ian Can­berra closed im­me­di­ately on Mon­day. The re­main­ing five sites, in the Syd­ney CBD, Par­ra­matta, Bris­bane, Perth, and Ade­laide, will con­tinue to op­er­ate, sal­vaged by a last-minute sale to Bris­bane-based Hall­mark Group, best known for the Ir­ish bar Finn McCools.
