About sSs BBQ

SSS BBQ Barns is the first and only steakhouse to ever win the National Restaurant and Catering awards for Best Themed Restaurant in Australia two years running, a major feat in its own right.

Company History

Graham and Marlene Manvell had a dream - to open a chain of or restaurants around Australia.

Their dream is coming true.

Graham is a chef of world renown. He started his apprenticeship in Australia, and has worked around the globe in places such as the London Savoy, the Sebel Townhouse, Mount Lofty House and Powerhouse International.

He is one of the most highly skilled and awarded chefs in Australia, and his career achievements are remarkable:

He was a member of the highest-ranking Australian National Team to compete in the Culinary Olympics in Frankfurt. The team won a Gold Medal in the coveted "Restaurant of Nations" section.

He won several prestigious International Medals in Germany, Luxembourg and Singapore and has gained over thirty National Culinary Competition Medals.

He is very highly regarded as a judge and has gained International Standing with contacts far and wide, he travels regularly to major competitions and trade shows to keep in touch with current trends. Graham was the founding secretary of the Australian Culinary Federation.

Marlene's background is very noteworthy, and she too has worked overseas in the service industry. Her knowledge and experience gained from having worked overseas is impressive and she has a superb background in professional hospitality within Australia.

Graham and Marlene set up Jumbuck Cottage in Tamworth during August 1990. It is a credit to their skill and hard work that Jumbuck Cottage was recognized as the place to dine for fine food, wine and excellent service. Their popular 4 Star Guesthouse was one of the latest additions to their exciting, and fast growing corporation. This has now been sold to expand the sSs BBQ Barn Steakhouse chain.

The first of the Saloons opened in November 1993 and is forging ahead in competitive markets. The strategy and the concept behind the sSs BBQ Barns Steakhouse has been to cater for a very broad market - families, bachelors, young people, more mature people, traveliers and business people all feel theylcome.

The dream has become reality, as more sSs BBQ Barns Steakhouses are opened, in what will become known around Australia, as the home grown chain of steakhouses and BBQ Barns offering excellent customer service with a little escapism thrown in for good measure.
