Ipswich Eagle Boys franchisee says the ovens are still on

NATIONAL pizza makers Eagle Boys have gone into voluntary administration, but say 'it's business as usual' as the company tries to woo a buyer.

The Australian company confirmed the news via a statement their website late last week.  

Ipswich franchisee Jessee Heilbronn found out through a company email on Friday.

But the information offered has left him no wiser on what the move means, if anything, for his business.

For five years Mr Heilbronn has been the franchisee of Eagle Boys at Raceview and two years ago took on the Ipswich store.

He echoed the company line of 'business as usual' and said despite changes in the corporate world staff in his stores would continue making pizzas.

Eagle Boys has said in a statement the voluntary administration did not extend to franchisees and all stores would remain under the control of individual franchisees operating normally.  

But administrator's SV Partners has assumed control of Eagle Boys' head office day-to-day operations, with a focus on maintaining business as usual and continuing with negotiations for a sale of the business.  

The administrators are in the process of identifying restructuring measures.
