It follows a tumultuous 12 months for the Gold Coast brandchisor, which has struggled in the wake of diminishing sales and the loss of its best performing franchise Baskin Robbins, now controlled by Dunkin Brands. Writedowns of around $32 million were reported for FY10.

The company’s CEO Shane Radbone and long-time managing director Peter Graham left the company in June.
