Would You Like Fries with that $25 Million?

Three Kiwi entrepreneurs have sold their hugely successful chain of UK burger restaurants for NZ$25.7 million. Greg Driscoll, Brandon Allen and Adam Wills opened the first Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Battersea, south London, in 2001. Similar in concept to NZ’s Burger Wisconsin, GBK soon developed a cult following, winning the Observer Food Monthly’s coveted Best Cheap Eats award in 2005. The business has been purchased by Clapham House, a major restaurant conglomerate owned by David Page. Driscoll, Brandon and Wills will stay on as company directors.
