Outback Jacks Bar and Grill is seeing double; the casual dining franchise chain has appointed two business partners as the master franchisee for NSW and ACT.

Rob Watkin and Gary Blyton have signed up for the master rights across the two territories and they expect to take the brand to new heights. There are eight restaurants opened in NSW with a ninth about to start construction at Fox Studios in Sydney. 

Blyton believes the relaxed Aussie Outback themed steakhouse concept is a great dining option for a wide demographic.

"I had already met and knew Graeme Diamond, the franchisor, from my previous businesses in the Australian food and franchising sectors and had watched the concept grow ," Blyton said.

"The family friendly aspect really appealed to me, having two kids. I know how good it is to go somewhere and relax over a good meal and a beer whilst the kids are happy off playing in the kids room." 

Owner and partner Rob Watkin is a successful franchisor with close to 50 franchisees operating in the Top Snap property photography business.  

The pair have new sites available including Sydney West, Central Coast, Canberra and Albury Wondonga.
