Szeretlek Magyarország has aired a part of his press conference held in his Buda restaurant Jamie’s Italian:
Jamie has so far two franchise restaurants in Budapest. The first one was opened in the Castle District in 2016, which made Hungary the third European country after Turkey and Russia into which the 40-year-old television star has expanded his chain of Italian eateries.
One and half years later, he expanded his restaurant empire in the Hungarian capital opening the first location of his international pizza chain in Continental Europe, in Gozsdu court. Both have been introduced to the market by local restauranteur Zoltán Roy Zsidai, owner of Spíler and ÉS.
