Benny Burger to shut down
The closure comes whilst reportedly still owing some $170,000 of debts.
The “ethical” burger chain owned by celebrity chef Shannon Bennett is shutting down.
Vue Group, who owns Benny Burger and a number of Bennett restaurants including Vue de Monde, confirmed their exit from the brand.
“Vue Group has made the commercial decision to exit the Benny Burger brand due to a shift in priorities. Vue Group remains focused on providing aspirational guest experiences through its diverse portfolio of venues and is confident the aforementioned change will deliver a stronger platform for growth in the future,” the statement read.
The closure comes amid reports of Benny Burger reportedly still owing some $170,000 worth of debts.
“All staff entitlements have been paid in full. Any amounts owing to suppliers will be settled in full as per the standard payment terms,” Vue Group’s statement continued.
