July 14, 2016

Spur Corporation has announced the closure of its UK-based operations. This follows a strategic move for the Group to focus on alternative international markets, namely Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

The Spur Steak & Grill restaurants located in Staines, Dublin and Belfast as well as Spur RBW Corby, ceased trade in July 2016 and will not be reopening.

“We would like to thank our many customers for their loyal support and patronage over the past years. It was our pleasure to serve you and share in the special moments with your family and friends”, says Pierre van Tonder, CEO of Spur Corporation. “It marks the end of an era for the Spur brand in the UK, but we look forward to bringing that great Spur taste to other parts of the world.”

Founded in 1967, the Spur Group is one of South Africa’s biggest restaurant franchisors and an international footprint with more than 500 restaurants worldwide, covering Africa, Mauritius, Australia and New Zealand. The brand family comprises Spur Steak Ranches, Panarottis Pizza Pasta, John Dory’s Fish Grill Sushi, Captain DoRegos, The Hussar Grill, RocoMamas and Casa Bella.
