Detective Senior Sergeant Tim Williams, Area Investigations Manager for Waitematā West Police, says a number of enquiries have been undertaken in the days following.
Today, Police are releasing a CCTV image as part of its investigation.
"We believe the male pictured can help Police with our enquiries and I urge anyone who knows his identity to contact us," says Detective Senior Sergeant Williams.
"This fire has caused a lot of damage to this business at a time that is already disruptive enough to the wider community.”
