Outback Jacks – finance has never been easier

By Sarah Stowe | 29 Oct 2015 View comments

Great news! It has never been easier to become a restaurateur with Outback Jacks (OBJ). The Bank of Queensland recently signed an accreditation deal Australia-wide with franchisor Graeme Diamond.

And thereÕs exciting news for NSW where OBJ has done a deal to take over the Lone Star sites across the state. Within the next few weeks these stores will be transformed into the OBJ concept.

“We have seven locations readily available across NSW, for enthusiastic, motivated people who would like to become an owner of their own store and have a lot of fun within the OBJ team,” says master franchisee Chris Day.

In sunny Queensland by June this year there will be 10 stores, a massive 150 per cent increase on the four restaurants open in March 2009.

Master franchisee spokesman Klaus Puschenjak states, “We have been working hard in developing the state over the past 12 months.”

Puschenjak says additional stores are planned for the last six months of 2010.

“We are currently negotiating sites on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane suburban areas plus Ipswich and regional Queensland. We seek energised franchisees to assist us in continuing our growth,” he adds.

Master franchisee Gary Diamond has grown South Australia from a single store to three restaurants within the last six months and two more are set to open shortly. After great success with the Knox City store in Victoria, Diamond has several locations under negotiation for up and coming franchisees.

And in Tasmania we have prime locations available in both Hobart and Launceston.

Then thereÕs good Ôol Freo; now four years old, the Fremantle restaurant is still the top store in Australia with sales continuing to rise. Western Australia has accepted the OBJ concept with open arms; there are two more stores and master franchisees Peter and Julie Velzen are working hard to find great locations to expand their territory.

There is even a site available in Dubai.


Outback Jacks has a lot of experience and has put this to good use, regularly updating the extensive training manuals. These give franchisees all the information needed to run a restaurant covering aspects such as administration, computer systems, kitchen procedures, recipes and service guidelines.

All OBJÕs franchisees are given four weeks intense training, one on one in all areas of the restaurant, and ongoing support from head office and its training team whenever required to give franchisees the best chance of a profitable business.
