Heal keen on Rocky burger deal

A NEW Urban Burger store could still open in Rockhampton, says businessman and former basketballer Shane Heal.

Heal contacted The Bulletin to explain confusion surrounding reports he filed for bankruptcy last month.

Questions had been raised about the impact of this on Heal's plans for Rockhampton in a Bulletin report yesterday.

He said the bankruptcy situation didn't mean the Urban Burger business venture wouldn't go ahead in Rockhampton.

In June, Heal called for a motivated local franchisee to take on the challenge of running the Rockhampton store.

"It's always been up in the air because nothing had been agreed upon," Mr Heal said.

"We've spoken to people but no one fit the bill."

He said all the companies he was a director of came under the banner, the Heal Group.

Mr Heal said the site mentioned previously - on Musgrave St between Noodle Box and Eagle Boys - was never owned or leased by the Heal Group.

He said the bank and the franchisors were running the Heal Group businesses and he would be staying on as a consultant for Urban Burger.
