WANNEROO and Clarkson Eagle Boys stores are still operating.

On July 14, the Australian head franchisor of the pizza chain was placed into voluntary administration.

However, for franchisee-owned stores such as Wanneroo and Clarkson, it is business as usual.

The owners of both outlets have thanked the local community for its ongoing support after a strong surge of sales in the past week.

Wanneroo franchisee Kellie Martin said this was a positive sign and her team was delighted with the local support.

“We are continuing to trade as per normal and would like to let the community know we are still going strong,” she said.

“We are grateful to the community for getting behind us and we will charge on.”

The Duncraig store has been closed since last Thursday.

It was one of 13 company-owned stores across Australia to stop operating.

In a statement issued on Thursday, it said administrators SV Partners was focussed on “maintaining business as usual and continuing with negotiations for a sale of the business”.

“The administrators are pleased to advise they have received enquiries from a number of interested parties since their appointment and are hopeful of a swift sale,” it said.

“The Eagle Boys management team is looking forward to the prospect of growing the brand under new ownership and would like to thank Eagle Boys customers, franchisees and team members for their ongoing support during this time.”
