Competition wiped out – Fast money kept workers in line


Despite a staff shortage in the hospitality industry, competitors have been unable to respond to problems at restaurant chain Burgerista. The purchase contract with the future owner must be signed on Wednesday.

Now the fight to save the burger chain Burgerista is fast-paced! Last Friday it was announced that Grieskirchner restaurateur Thomas Altendorfer would take over the insolvent company along with the eight restaurants; Tuesday, the first creditors’ meeting took place at the regional court in Linz, which officially gave the green light to continue operations; today, Wednesday, Altendorfer was to sign the purchase contract…

The 56-year-old will take over the brand and its 130 employees and will also continue to run all the restaurants. But how did Burgerista manage to keep employees on board despite the financial turbulence, while there are currently huge opportunities to change jobs in the hospitality industry?

“The employees really stand behind the company”
Administrator Rudolf Mitterlehner relied on quick solutions. There was an advance on the July salaries a few days after the opening of the bankruptcy, the June salary was transferred directly by the bankruptcy compensation fund. “We were able to create safety so quickly,” says Mitterlehner, who is satisfied: “The employees really stand behind the company.”
