A Revolution of Restaurants pop up across Australia


Several locations across Australia are seeing instant restaurants popping up – all part of a new reality TV series.

Late last year agencies associated with Channel 7 started recruiting applicants for a new TV show… “to turn your vision for a restaurant into reality, while competing for a life changing prize…”* Applications (for teams of two to four people) closed back in January… the successful teams were required to commit to 3 to 4 months filming (the show is due to air later this year).

The challenge is to design and name a restaurant space, do the marketing and the launch… and finally open for business. Not an easy task at any time… but made a whole lot more stressful under TV lights – and millions of Australians watching every move (criticising… aren’t we all experts at cooking and running restaurants ?)

The temporary restaurants will pop up in leisure and dining districts across 5 Australian states – Melbourne’s site is opposite the foreshore at St Kilda, Adelaide is at Victoria Square, Perth is at Leederville and Southbank the choice for Brisbane. The odd one out is NSW with Parramatta as their location (quite a distance from the Sydney CBD) – but right in the midst of things at Centenary Square.

Each location will feature a collection of colourful shipping containers to house the restaurants – all of which are now under construction. I’ve watched the stacked containers coming together at St Kilda – but would expect each installation will be different, built to the team’s specifications.
