According to reports from The Sydney Morning Herald, Max Brenner has entered into voluntary administration.

The chocolate restaurant chain will be closing down 20 of the 37 locations across the nation.

A McGrathNicol representative announced the news, saying those stores affected will be shutting down for good at 5pm on Monday, 8 October, 2018:

“The decision to close stores is always regrettable but in this case we were left with no choice following a store-by-store review of Max Brenner operations. The remaining 17 stores in the Max Brenner network will stay open and it will be business as usual in these stores. These stores are profitable and will be offered for sale or recapitalisation.”
