Burger chain Grill'd grilled for labour issues, food safety breaches

Co-founder Simon Crowe allegedly forged documents for liquor licenses too.

A two-month-long investigation on Grill’d has uncovered a string of labour and management issues.

Reports by the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) revealed that the burger chain has committed ‘sustained and frequent breaches of food safety standards.’ SMH also noted that Grill’d was found to have used government-subsidised, low-paid traineeships to ‘keep wages down.’

In another report, Crowe was discovered to have forged signatures of his former business partner Simon McNamara on liquor licence application forms for its Perth restaurants.

QSR Media has reached out to Grill'd for comments but it has yet to respond as of press time.
