Tuning in to Docklands

29 Nov 2011

Tuning in to Docklands Image

Community radio listeners in Melbourne’s leafy eastern suburbs were treated to a live radio show from Docklands last month.

Radio 3WBC 94.1 FM broadcast its weekly Illeagles small business program from Bob’s Steak and Chop House, on November 17.

The “Illeagles” are business-specialist lawyers George Lopez and Sam Muscat and they were in Docklands to do a special two-hour show on franchising business.

The idea to broadcast from Bob’s Steak and Chop House came from Franchise Council of Australia executive director Steve Wright, who appears in a fortnightly Illeagles segment called Franchise Fever.

“It was an idea borne out of a Halloween reception for the US Ambassador held at Bob’s a few weeks earlier, which Sam and I attended,” Mr Wright told Docklands News.

“It is a great location and a great venue.  And it is also a franchise – the first Bob’s in Australia – so it seemed a no-brainer to me that the Illeagles should do a franchising show there.

“Thankfully, Sam and George agreed, because it was great fun and went really well.  Lots of passers by stopped to check out what we were doing – or, then again, maybe they just stopped to have a beer in the outdoor bar area!  It did look pretty inviting!”

The restaurant in Bourke St is the first Bob’s Steak and Chop House outside of the USA and owner Sanjay Chimnani holds the rights for Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

“When people think about franchises, they often think small, quick-service businesses,” Mr Wright said. “What Bob’s shows is that there are other more sophisticated options as well.”

The December Docklands News Networking Lunch is being held at Bob’s on December 9.
