National Executive Director, Phil Johns thanked Jacko and the Al
Fresco’s Group adding that, “In some respects, there are some quite
strong parallels between the Al Fresco’s Group and AusCham.
are all about people – and so too is business. Al Fresco’s customers
aren’t restricted to one city; they expand the length of Vietnam. So to
do AusCham’s members. Al Fresco’s caters to its different market
segments through its differently branded restaurants. AusCham is
beginning to more effectively cater to our different market segments
through initiatives such as ‘themed Sundowners’. Meanwhile, most of
AusCham’s members and potential members will probably be regular diners
at an Al Fresco’s restaurant.”
Phil concluded that “Al Frescos’
Bronze Investorship offers a real opportunity for both parties to
promote ‘Brand Australia’. When the extended Australian business
community bands together, so much more becomes possible.”
The Al Fresco’s Group is Jaspas, Al Fresco’s, Pepperonis, Jacksons Steakhouse, Spotted Cow and Papa Joe.
