About Jason


Born and raised in Dunedin, Jason started out in Hospitality at an early age with after school and holiday work in kitchens until beginning his chef apprenticeship in Dunedin.

While attending Otago University studying Marketing, he continued to grow his experience in the hospitality sector and discovered after a couple of years, Hospitality was where his true passion lay. Upon completing his apprenticeship and a few years away in Queenstown, Jason returned to Dunedin for the birth of his daughter and was involved in several successful hospitality businesses as well as spending four years managing the southern region for what was then, Cerebos Foodservice.

Jason built and opened his first restaurant in ’08, which allowed him to develop and enhance the skills and knowledge that would ultimately start him on the hospitality consultancy path.

After some time in Australia, in various hospitality and training roles, he returned to New Zealand to take on further senior management roles, spending almost 6 years in Christchurch through the earthquakes. This was a challenging time for the industry, and Jason dedicated his energy to helping to re-establish the Christchurch hospitality scene, assisting with the re-opening of many different and successful venues. Returning home to Dunedin in 2016, it was back into the kitchen for a year or so before returning to coffee with 3 ½ years managing sales for The Strictly Coffee Company.

With the experience and knowledge gained from over 30 years intimately involved in Hospitality, on bars, in kitchens, managing, teaching and consulting, there isn’t much that Jason hasn’t seen, experienced nor been unable to deal with!

If you are taking your first steps into venue ownership or you’re a seasoned hospitality professional looking for that next venue, then let’s get together today and make something happen.

Jason's testimonial

"I have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Jason Marshall on a professional basis whilst he was working at another company in Dunedin. When it was time to sell my business, The Last Post in Oamaru,  I decided to contact Jason to see if he would list my business. 

I have to say that I was extremely impressed with his marketing plan and the fact that he had a strong hospitality background coupled with a wealth of understanding and knowledge was very important to me. This confirmed to me that I had chosen the right agent. Jason was very honest and upfront with me stating that it might take some time to sell due to the then current market situation. 

When we got some interested parties Jason was very committed to arrange viewings at very short notice and was flexible to make things happen. When it came to the beginning of the offering/selling process Jason demonstrated professionalism, expertise and a great deal of patience. He was  committed to achieving the best possible result for all parties concerned.  Jason is a great communicator and always kept us informed of any progress. I can highly recommend Jason Marshall to anyone looking to buy or sell in the hospitality business."


"We had the pleasure of having Jason sell our café. Jason is extremely efficient, and his communication was fantastic. The weekly reports that we got were great, and Jason went out of his way to ensure that any questions were answered, and we had a lot! We highly recommend Jason if you’re thinking of selling your business, especially in hospitality as he knows what he’s talking about!"

I was informed every step of the way and Jace was always available to help, It's an emotional ride especially selling a business so close to the heart but Jase understood this and genuinely wanted to see a good outcome for myself and my business, and that is what we got. Thank you!"
