Faces of the Dux

Our second profile in introducing 'Faces of the Dux'. This month we have a very special profile, it's none other than the owner and founder of the Dux Group - Richard Sinke.

Richard Sinke, the owner of the Dux Group, embarked on his entrepreneurial journey in 1978 with the establishment of his radical vegetarian restaurant, ‘Dux De Lux.’ Over the past four decades, he has consistently expanded the Dux Group, shaping it into its present-day form. The Dux group embodies the spirit and vibrancy of Christchurch and is firmly embedded in the community as ‘the place to meet.’
The Beginning
As a student at the University of Canterbury, I worked in a restaurant to fund my weekend partying habits, gaining experience in the hospitality industry. In 1977, the newly formed Arts Centre advertised a tenant for a building, and I thought it would be perfect for a vegetarian restaurant with live entertainment and bands.
