Sam’s will move to Queensland from Adelaide in 2018 after being offered a lease deal by the state government, the restaurant operator has confirmed.
Sam’s said it would invest more than $500 million in the new premises, with a target to open in 2019.
Samuel’s has been a pioneer in Australia of franchising, opening branches in Australia’s most populous state, Victoria, and South Australia.
Sam has been able to grow its business to meet growing demand for its pizza, and the move will be a boon for the Queensland economy.
It will create up to 1,000 jobs and support about 500,000 Australian families, it said.
It said the move would create about 3,500 permanent jobs in Queensland.
The company said it planned to continue operating in Queensland and the ACT, with about 1,200 new jobs.
