A Jamie’s Italian franchisee has reportedly toured New Zealand looking for possible sites in the country for the fast-growing chain. Reports in New Zealand said that Pacific Restaurant Group’s David Williams toured through Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown looking at sites for three new restaurants, each seating up to 200 diners for the high-profile chef’s chain. Pacific Restaurant Group, which holds the licence for the brand in Australia and New Zealand, plans to eventually open 14 Jamie's Italian restaurants across the two countries after signing a franchise deal last January. The company opened its first Jamie's Italian restaurant in Sydney last October.
