Australia's Pie Face to open in NZ in April

Australia's Pie Face to open in NZ in April

By Hannah Lynch

Sept. 12 (BusinessDesk) - Pie Face, the Sydney-based fast food bakery chain, has signed a memorandum of understanding with South Island Subway owners, Jared Palmer and Julian Field to roll out at least 62 stores in New Zealand over the 10 years.

The gourmet savoury and sweet pie maker, which currently operates 76 sites in Australia and opened its first of eight Manhattan store last month, will open an Auckland store in April. Palmer and Field paid an undisclosed up-front fee to Pie Face and will pay a share of royalties, trading profit and marketing levies in perpetuity.

"We are like-minded in our hands-on approach to operations and see a bright future for our brand in the NZ market," Wayne Homschek, co-founder of Pie Face said in a statement.

Products will initially be imported from Pie Face Australia and then produced under the local New Zealand license.

Steve Wynn, chief executive of US hotel resorts business Wynn Resorts, took a US$15 million stake in the sweet and savory goods maker’s US business this year.
