    The "transition" is adding another burger brand and a chicken takeaway ... more entrants offering no real point of difference in an already bloated market .... and an absence of any financial forward focus. Good news?

    No good news for me ...

    Overseas expansion to Australia = Fail
    Overseas expansion into MiddleEast = Fail
    Overseas expansion into USA = Fail
    Expansion in NZ = Saturated

    BurgerFuel is simply surviving and is looking for a buyer ... any investor might get lucky if they buy in at current levels if a cashed up overseas buyer can be found.

    I have thought this from the beginning that they need a buyer. I never invested and people I knew who had invested mentioned, "big returns for the future, you can't lose in the food game". How I love people who have never been in the food game mentioning how profitable it is.....It can be profitable if run properly.

    I know of a few investors (including Milford) who invested and rode this thing all the way to over $3.00 at one stage, over 2014 & 2015.

    Some got out while a few stayed.

    You'd have to be game to take on Fergburger at Queenstown. That's a tourist attraction in itself, just to see the length of the never-ending queue.

    Does not stop other burger chains (Burger King, MacDonalds etc) from operating in Queenstown?

    Rents in Queenstown are astronomical and there are probably better opportunities elsewhere for a Burger Fuel!

    No it doesn't stop competition, but it sure makes it tough for them to even look successful.

    McDonalds in the O'Connells Centre is always busy and around dinner time, there's usually a long long queue as well except that the McDonalds efficient operating system clears the queue fairly quickly.
