Press Release
: : 31 March, 2005

Leading Australian and New Zealand bakery franchise operator Brumby's has began negotiations to open stores in Fiji.

It follows Brumby's managing director Michael Sherlock and New Zealand Master Franchisee Michael Kopittke traveling to Suva earlier this month to investigate expansion opportunities across Asia and the Pacific.

Mr Sherlock said he met with representatives of a number of companies while in Fiji about the possibility of establishing Brumby's stores in the country.

"Negotiations are now underway with a leading Fijian company as a result of those meetings,'' he said. "At this stage we are undertaking feasibility studies.''

Mr Sherlock said he was impressed during his visit by the potential Fiji held for Brumby's.

"I have been to more than 60 countries and I believe Fijians lead the world in their love for hot bread,'' he said.

"And I think they would be attracted to the many varieties, shapes and flavours that Brumby's can offer.

"Tom Potter's Eagle Boys Pizza has just opened its first store in Fiji and we are also keen to take advantage of the great potential the county offers.

"We will open our 22nd New Zealand store in June and we are looking for further opportunities across the Pacific region.''

Currently, Brumby's has 300 stores across Australia and New Zealand and earlier this month Mr Sherlock returned from a visit to India where he was investigating the potential for the bakery franchise to expand into Asia.
