Jigsaw = Goodberrys

By che 29 March 2005 24

In response to this story on the death of Goodberrys we’ve had this comment sent in by Banvie.

Goodberry’s Australia went broke in 2004. Three of the existing Goodberry’s stores (Woden, Erindale and Belconnen) joined with a group that bought the assets of Goodberry’s but part of the condition of continuing the stores was that we had to change the name. The name JIGSAW was chosen to reflect the fact that people come in and put together their own frozen custard, sunday, jiuce etc. All the stores are independently operated from Goodberry’s so the difficulties of having Goodberry’s go broke has placed a lot of pressure on the stores. All of them have made the best of a bad situtation and are just now getting on a footing that will enable the original concept to expand. The idea was that frozen custard stores would be started in Canberra and eventually open in centres all around Australia. Goodberry’s may have died but out of the ashes…. You can still get frozen custard just like Goodberry’s because Goodberry’s is now JIGSAW.

What’s Your opinion?

Hi Struth,

Our website will be at jigsawcreamery.com.au – it’s being designed at the moment.

If I sound defensive, my apologies – just wanting to get things clear out in the community, and am willing to answer everyone’s questions clearly (and quickly hehe) in order to do it. 🙂

Where is the website for Jigsaw? I want to find out if I can book tables for a birthday etc and can’t track it down. Another problem with it being a commonish brandname and jigsaw.com is someone else.
L like how open you are Cameron about the process but its also beginning to sound a bit defensive… maybe wait longer before replying? I’m sure you’ll do well, its a great product. Helpful staff make so much difference too so if you’re retraining or rehiring that’ll help.Good luck

Yes, Dickson has been sold to a different franchise. Rubee’s I believe they’re calling themselves. Many of the old Goodberry’s Australia operators and employees are involved with them.

Not sure yet how I feel about people who were at the helm of Goodberry’s Australia went down freeing themselves of all responsibility and then opening up again in competition with their old franchisees.

I simply hope that the real truth about how Goodberry’s Dickson became “Rubees” (or whatever it’s called) is told, and not some fantasy tale.

Hey everyone, in regards to the Dickson Goodberry’s store, it looks like the original owners have sold and the new owners have taken over in the last couple of days. It’s starting to look a little different inside and out. I went there on Wed night and the staff were all super friendly and the service was really quick. I had a little chat to one of the guys behind the counter and he told me to keep my eye on things because some “really exciting and fun changes are about to happen”… Just to let you know!
