Brumby’s managing director Michael Sherlock said the earnings increase was fueled by a growth in revenue of 11.0 per cent as well improved efficiencies in operating costs.

“As at December 31 there were a total of 314 franchisees across Australia and New Zealand including the opening of a record of 18 new stores in the six month period.

“That includes the successful opening in Melbourne of our forth and fifth new concept stores Brumby’s Go!
