The nine restaurants in the New South Wales chain are managed by Frank Criniti and his wife Rima.
On Tuesday evening, some were temporarily closed before the staff got the bad news. Most of them were expected to reopen on Wednesday for lunch.
The directors of Criniti Restaurant Group, consisting of 40 companies involved in the operation of the restaurants, have appointed Worrells Solvency and Forensic Accountants.
Administrator Graeme Beattie said the slow economy and low consumer spending have paralyzed the chain.
& # 39; Criniti & # 39; s is a well-known, beloved chain, but, like all hospitality businesses, has high overhead costs and is susceptible to weakening retail spending, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; With some locations in the group doing better than others, our first priority will be the preservation of value by identifying and closing the poorer artists, which we expect to have several.

& # 39; These will be difficult, regrettable but necessary decisions just because we do not believe that the group as a whole can act indefinitely while a buyer is found or some other solution is reached, perhaps through a business arrangement deed & # 39; .
Referring to the staff who will lose their jobs, he said: "There is never a good way to bring this kind of news and we understand the shock, disappointment and fear of the loyal Criniti employees."
& # 39; Although we have little comfort for the affected employees, by acting quickly to reduce losses, we give remaining employees a better prospect of ongoing work and all creditors have a greater chance of payment & # 39 ;.
He said that customers with gift vouchers will be contacted soon.
