Jamie Oliver's Aust business hits trouble

Jamie Oliver

Mr Oliver's Australian company, set up in March past year to buy the restaurants from their failed owners, went into voluntary administration yesterday.

The company has taken over the management of Jamie's Italian sites in Adelaide, Brisbane, Paramatta, Perth and Sydney, and is actively seeking new locations for further openings.

Frank Gleeson, Aramark's president in Northern Europe said: "We are passionate about the health and wellbeing of those we serve every day so it was a natural fit for us to partner with Jamie Oliver".

"The Canberra restaurant is the only one in Australia to shut, with no reason given for its closure".

A spokesperson for the Jamie Oliver Group confirmed the sites were sold to Hallmark through voluntary administration.

Explosion near Indian embassy in Nepal, report says ISI role suspected
The role of ISI is suspected to be behind the attack and also said that they are planning attacks on other Indian embassies also. The report also said that cadres of a local political party could be behind the blasts.

"Australia has and continues to be one of our best performing global markets", Mr Shaughnessy said.

Mr Oliver, the face of Woolworths' advertising campaigns and who is credited with helping turn around British supermarket chain Sainsbury's, bought the Australian Jamie's Italian restaurants from receivers of the failed Keystone Group in March 2017.

"We'll be working closely with Jamie and the United Kingdom team, staff and local suppliers to keep driving the business forward and delivering exceptional experiences across the country", a statement by Hallmark said.

Restaurant concepts operated by TV chef Jamie Oliver, such as Jamie Oliver's Diner and Jamie's Deli, could become a common sight in office catering environments following a landmark deal with Aramark.
