Future of Brodies up in the air

I WAS a teenager when Brodies first opened in Gympie in 1987 with their uniquely juicy barbecue chicken.

As the years rolled by, it became a regular port of call after a big night out.

A quarter chicken and chips or a Brodies burger was (is) the perfect hangover cure.

The point is, like Caitlyn Shadbolt, the Muster and Andrew Fisher, Brodies is a Gympie success story.

The business expanded into Brisbane and was doing well until recently.

To hear that creditors will now decide the fate of our home-grown quarter chicken and chips is sad news.

These are tough times for many small businesses, and finding a way through has proven impossible for some.

I just hope they are given a Brodies quarter chicken and chips before making any big decisions.

One taste and they will know this company has a future.
