Goodberryâ€™s Australia went broke in 2004. Three of the existing Goodberryâ€™s stores (Woden, Erindale and Belconnen) joined with a group that bought the assets of Goodberryâ€™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 Goodberryâ€™s so the difficulties of having Goodberryâ€™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. Goodberryâ€™s may have died but out of the ashesâ€¦. You can still get frozen custard just like Goodberryâ€™s because Goodberryâ€™s is now JIGSAW.
