    Was at Jamie's a couple of months ago for their crazy happy hour. The bar was busy and there were quite a few diners too. But by 9pm the place was empty.

    This seems like deja...vu? Didn’t we have a conversation earlier this year about you maybe booking flights on Jet to India?

    You are correct. The admins are CURRENTLY being called in for the UK restaurants. Does this immediately affect the franchises in HK....no

    but in the longer term it makes operating the Jamie name in HK less certain.

    As a franchisee do I want to pay as much for a brand that is now less in value? Will it be more difficult to work with a brand where decisions have to be run by another third party KPMG? Just saying.

    Either way, The Big Cat Group are still locked in as a franchisee with Jamie Oliver's dining brand in Hong Kong and Taiwan and (to what I understand) a long tenancy agreement in CWB and TST.
