We started with a single Lone Star Restaurant in Manchester Street in Christchurch way back in 1987. There was no grand plan just a number of our family who wanted to put together a great restaurant that incorporated our love for country music and everything that surrounds it.
The first two restaurants in Christchurch and Queenstown were such a resounding success that we’ve been working hard to find great people to open their own Lone Star restaurants ever since.
Joe’s Garage came along in the early 2000’s. It was a fabulous existing cafe started by some great people. When they wanted to exit they approached us and we have been rolling out Joe’s Garage cafes around the country for the last 15 years.
