Jimmy Buffett is considering opening a Margaritaville restaurant in Byron Bay, Australia, according to NorthernStar.com:
Speaking from Palm Beach, Florida, ahead of his Bluesfest appearance in April, the singer said he will be scouting suitable locations for a possible business venture.
“Byron Bay is such a unique place to me,” he said.
“I’d like to look at some opportunities while I’m there.”
Mr Buffett said he would also be open to discuss a partnership with local businesspeople.
“If there was anybody interested, I would certainly be interested,” he said.
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is a United States-based casual dining restaurant chain and a chain of stores selling Jimmy Buffett-themed merchandise.
It is owned by Buffettand named after his hit song Margaritaville.
Asked on what type of set up would he be scouting for, Jimmy Buffett said it has to be a venue that suits the Byron Bay style.
“It doesn’t matter what size it is, I’d love to have a spot there just to get on the map, but it’s not about how large it is, it’s how it fits in with the rest of the community,” he said.
“It has to fit in with what I think it’s a wonderful kind of atmosphere that I associate with Byron Bay.”
