Brisbane-based hospitality empire collapses

A Brisbane-based hospitality group, that includes seven bakeries, has gone into liquidation with 90 staff affected.

BCN Events Group operated seven venues that specialised in bakery goods, but was shut down overnight on May 28.

King Street Bakery, wholesale service provider The Kneadery have been closed alongside cooking school Lumiere Culinary Studio and popular cafe Mica.

Mark Holland, Jamie Harris and Anthony Connelly of restructuring firm McGrath Nicol were appointed as liquidators.

“We intend to work with staff, customers and suppliers during this difficult time,” the liquidators told

The hospitality group was run by award-winning chef Shannon Kellam, who also runs the French fine dining restaurant Montrachet, and another Mica cafe in the Brisbane airport, which will continue to trade.
