Jamie Oliver chain fails

The Dominion Post - - 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.
