Corbett & Claude, Comuna Cantina
HE’S the founder of a restaurant group who has created more than 150 jobs at six separate venues in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and in Sydney.
Starting at McDonald’s at 13, his last role was the general manager of Fonda in Melbourne, before he took a leap of faith at the old Corbett Chambers and started up his Corbett & Claude pizza chain in Brisbane and Sydney.
Corbett & Claude can now be found in four separate locations and joins two other Latin Street food concepts, Comuna under the one umbrella.
“We are now looking for growth based on larger locations with possibilities for multi brands in the one venue,” says Johnson.
“We are also looking at the potential for franchising and other licensing opportunities across the country.”
Through operating a restaurant group, Johnson says he has the opportunity to impact so many lives on so many levels from basic employment to supporting the local community.
“Part of our culture is about creating a place people love to be in and empowering and motivating young people,” he said.
