Eagle Boys Roma are ‘still going strong’
IT IS business as usual for Eagle Boys Roma after the company’s head franchisor was placed in to voluntary administration last week.
Eagle Boys Roma franchisee Megan Bishop said she wants the community to know nothing has changed and that she was thankful for their support.
“We are continuing to trade as per normal and would like to let the community know we are still going strong,” Ms Bishop said.
“We are grateful to the community for getting behind us and we will charge on, providing high quality pizzas at great prices.”
It was reported that one of the region’s most popular food chains had collapsed as administrators move in to negotiate a national sale.
Eagle Boys, which has eight stores in the Toowoomba and wider Darling Downs region, has appointed administrators SV Partners to negotiate a sale.
In a statement published on its website late last week, Eagle Boys said SV Partners had “assumed control of Eagle Boys’ head office day-to-day operations” and were in the process of “identifying restructuring measures”.
But it’s business as usual for the popular chain in Roma, according to the company which has more than 120 stores nationwide.
“Eagle Boys stores across Australia will continue to trade during this process,” the statement said.
“For Eagle Boys customers, franchisees, employees and suppliers it’s business as usual while the administrators’ review is under way.
“The Eagle Boys national franchise remains on the market for sale.”
The next closest store to the Roma outlet is in Dalby and the popular chain also has outlets in Westbrook, Wilsonton, Pittsworth, Oakey, Highfields, Plainland, Warwick and Rosewood.
Despite the collapse of the company, Eagle Boys stores have reported record sales in deliveries and pick-up orders over the past week.
A good sign for those who, like Ms Bishop, are franchisees of a store.
