The Collapse of Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Empire explained
Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study
In this piece of ground-breaking research entitled Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study, we reveal to you using nothing other than his core numbers (i.e. his DOB and Full Birth Name) that the collapse of his restaurant empire coincided perfectly with his Number 8 (money, power, business, grand-scale organising etc.) karmic life lesson. We also reveal to you that the opening of his most loved restaurant, Fifteen, in 2002, was also hardcoded from birth as being a massively significant life event. Before we get into all the numerical detail, you need to understand this: Jamie Oliver has the Master Number 22 (i.e. The Master Builder; Birth YY 1975 = 1+9+7+5 = 22) coded into his 365 Pin Code Numerology and master builders are hardwired to go for it on a massive scale. That’s why so many of them will experience more than one tremendous financial boom, and, also go spectacularly bust more than once in their lives. This cycle will repeat itself until they learn the necessary leadership and management skills required to intelligently mitigate risk, most importantly, their own personal risk!
“What I’ve enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn – I love it!” Jamie Oliver
Jamie Oliver positively disrupted mid-market dining, but then he paid the price!
22 May 2019: Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has said he is “devastated” after his restaurant group went into administration, with 1,000 jobs being lost. The group, which includes the Jamie’s Italian chain, Barbecoa and Fifteen, has appointed KPMG as administrators. Twenty two of the 25 restaurants in Jamie Oliver’s restaurant group have now closed. Mr Oliver, who put in £4m cash this year, said: “I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected.” He goes on to say “I’m devastated that our much-loved UK restaurants have gone into administration. I would also like to thank all the customers who have enjoyed and supported us over the last decade, it’s been a real pleasure serving you. We launched Jamie’s Italian in 2008 with the intention of positively disrupting mid-market dining in the UK High Street, with great value and much higher quality ingredients, best-in-class animal welfare standards and an amazing team who shared my passion for great food and service. And we did exactly that.”
Many staff members blamed his Brother-in-Law for the empire’s collapse
21 May 2019: Brittany Vonow writes: JAMIE Oliver’s brother-in-law who is a director of the chef’s failing restaurant chain is an “incompetent” bully, it is claimed. Paul Hunt, one of five directors of Jamie’s Italian, was branded “testosterone central” as it emerged the restaurant chain today collapsed and left 1,000 people out of a job.
Mr Hunt, 54, has faced claims he had a problem working with strong women – and even once gave his PA her own redundancy letter to type out before she knew she had lost her job. The reports come as Jamie’s Italian Limited – which includes 23 Jamie’s Italian restaurants and 15 Barbecoa outlets – has appointed KPMG as administrators. Staff claimed they were sacked in a conference call just 30 minutes before the chain announced its collapse. Just three restaurants will now stay open in the short term – two Jamie’s Italian restaurants and Jamie Oliver’s Diner all based at Gatwick Airport. Mr Hunt – who is married to Oliver’s sister Anna-Marie – was put in charge of Jamie Oliver Ltd in 2014, and was made a director of the Jamie’s Italian chain within months…
But Jamie defended Mr Hunt saying he is a capable CEO
But last year, Oliver himself branded the claims “nonsense”, adding that Hunt is “a loyal brother-in-law, loving father and strong, capable CEO”. Jamie wrote on Facebook: “There has been some negative press coverage with so-called friends of mine saying nasty, untrue things about Paul Hunt, who is the CEO of my business. “First, let me say that the story is nonsense and I absolutely refute the picture they paint of Paul and my business. I’ve known Paul for years both as a loyal brother-in-law and loving father as well as a strong and capable CEO who I charged with re-shaping the business. He has radically transformed our business for the better – it’s now more successful, vibrant and creative than ever and now we are able to focus on doing the same in our UK restaurant business.”
Irrespective of what your views on Mr Hunt’s management and leadership capabilities are, we will, using Jamie’s 2014 numerology code, reveal that the on-boarding of his brother-in-law took place during a Karmic Debt Number 19 cycle in Jamie’s lifepath. This means that if subsequently to Mr Hunt being on-boarded, he did indeed act in a merciless and unscrupulous business manner, his ways would have drastically exacerbated the impact of Jamie’s Karmic Life Lesson Number 8 (money, power, wealth business, authority, leadership, grand-scale organising etc.) starting 2017.
History shows that the major collapse happened in 2017 and rapidly accelerated from there…
“I challenge you, to go to any school and open 50 lunchboxes, and I guarantee you there will be one or two cans of Red Bull, there’ll be cold McDonald’s and jam sandwiches with several cakes.” Jamie Oliver

365 Pin Code Numerology Birth Chart for Jamie Oliver born 27.05.1975
Jamie Oliver has a Number 9 life path and a number 18//9 shadow of emotional life path. The number 9 when positively engaged, deals with humanity, higher callings, forgiveness, universal love, philanthropy etc. His personal energy, physically (i.e. above the line) and emotionally (shadow, i.e. below the line) is also linked with the Number 9 (Birth DD = 27th; 27 = 2+7 = 9). He is a very special. Of great interest to us is that with his being born in 1975 (1975 = 1+9+7+5 = 22) he carries The Master Builder (i.e. Master number 22) code as his World / Career Number. Master builders are coded to do extraordinary things and on their way to mastery, they will learn many very tough lessons about building structures which are of practical value to humanity / others. Master builders like Jamie create great success through inspiring others, through getting teams of people working harmoniously toward a higher cause with a mutually beneficial vision and doing this in a spirit of cooperation, collaboration, peace and harmony.
Could the Root Cause of the Disaster be that Mr Hunt did not Align his Ways with those of the Master Builder 22?
Could this be where it all went terribly wrong for Jamie Oliver? Did his allowing his brother-in-law (Mr Hunt…) carte balance to stamp “his clinical, authoritarian, business-like ways” on Jamie’s creative empire? If the way Mr Hunt works / applied himself within the Group is not aligned with what its creator, Jamie’s master number 22 represents, then the lesson would be Jamie’s to learn and tough as it may be to understand, he (i.e. Mr Hunt) would become Jamie’s greatest teacher…
365 Pin Code Pythagorean Square Birth Chart for Jamie Oliver born 27.05.1975
Jamie Oliver has only one arrow in play, the Arrow of Determination. From this we can instantly deduce that he is a very determined man who once he has the bit between his teeth, is not easily turned, which can be tremendously beneficial. The toughest lessons which this arrow delivers to its carriers is to teach them how to become much more discerning as to what they determine is worthy to get themselves into. Stated differently, to become more holistically circumspect in their decision making and to develop a greater awareness around risk and the importance of intelligently mitigating it…
We are done with analysing the date of birth data component of Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study; now we will move on to analysing his full birth name.
365 Pin Code Full Birth Name analysis of James Trevor Oliver
James Trevor Oliver totals 83 (JTO’s Expression Number = 83 = 8+3 =11; master number 11) which reduces down to the master number 11, the intuitive visionary, the giver of illumination, enlightenment and teaching, the one who lights up the darkness and through this reveals what needs to be seen in order for the necessary healing to happen. His Balance Number is again, a 9, which speaks to his need to be cause driven, to be doing something which has great impact and creates wellbeing for many. As we said earlier, he is a very special guy!
Jamie Oliver has the Numbers 7 and 8 as his TWO Karmic Lessons
He has the numbers 7 and 8 missing entirely from his full birth name therefore these are his two Karmic Lessons, the Number 7 being linked with seeking deeper spiritual truths, specialisation, wisdom, critical thinking, analytical skills etc. and the Number 8 being linked with legal matters, power, money, business, authority, organising on a grand scale, abundance, wealth, leadership of others etc. There can be no doubt that as he now reflects on all that was and on his incredible loss, these factors will be powerfully in play. That said, he is not dead and buried, not by any means, this was just a terrible setback, but a massively important one in that it will have taught him so much about the price you pay when are a creative genius who does not pay the necessary attention to business-related detail and who ignorantly chooses to allow others to control and run your empire…
“I wouldn’t say that processed food, ready meals and even takeaways aren’t relevant to modern life, it’s just that over the past 40 years there are three generations of people who have come out of school and gone through their home life without ever being shown how to cook properly.” Jamie Oliver
Don’t think this cataclysmic collapse hasn’t him terribly hard, it has!
365 Pin Code Numerology Quadratic View: Jamie Oliver’s year-on-year lines of Experiential Code from 1997 to 2030
And this is where Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study, gets very real. The above table of data (which his completely unique to 365 Pin Code) is created when we synchronise his DOB and full birth name. Our 4D (personal physical, personal emotional, professional physical, professional emotional) rich lines of code are bulls-eye accurate and reveal that much as we might like to kick against this notion, our lives are being led according to a mathematically intelligent Grand Organised Design, laid down from the moment we are born.
Jamie’s beloved restaurant, Fifteen, was opened in 2002. Go to the above line of code for 2002 and you will see that it heralds the start of a 3-year period (2002 – 2004) driven by the RED Experience Number 22&4. Where does the master number 22 appear in Jamie’s 365 pin code numerology? That’s right, it is his World Career Number because he was born in YY 1975 (1975 = 1+9+7+5 = 22). So, in 2002 Jamie began his Master Builder experience and that’s when everything suddenly began to really click.
In June 2003 (slap bang in the middle of his Master Builder coded success period) Oliver was awarded an MBE for his services to the hospitality industry. Although it is customary to wear morning dress or a lounge suit for the event, Oliver did not wear a tie with his brown Paul Smith suit, saying: “I like ties but I prefer not to wear one when I am nervous.”
The Naked Chef in 1999 aligned perfectly with his Christian Name, James!
Now, let’s go back to 1999, the year when the BBC aired his TV show, The Naked Chef and his cookbook become a bestseller in the UK. Have a look at the line of code in play for Jamie Oliver in 1999 and you will notice that it is driven by the RED Experience Number 12//3. His first name, James, totals 12 [JAMES = 1+1+4+5+1 = 12 = 1+2 = 3 = 12//3]. Therefore, the dominant experiential numerical code in play for him in 1999 is perfectly linked with his Christian Name, James — to the very astute and strategically informed numerologist, this always indicates an extremely personal experience…
There’s still so much more to this detailed research on Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study, so let’s keep digging…
From 2005 to 2009 he was Living Large his Personal Attainment [SUN] Number 5
From 2005 to 2009 Jamie Oliver had the world at his feet with the RED Experience Number 23//5 powerfully in play… In 2005 Oliver initiated a campaign originally called “Feed Me Better” to move British schoolchildren towards eating healthy foods and cutting out junk food. As a result, the British government also pledged to address the issue. His public campaign for changes in nutrition resulted in people voting him as the “Most Inspiring Political Figure of 2005”, according to a Channel 4 News annual viewer poll. His emphasis on cooking fresh, nutritious food continued as he created Jamie’s Ministry of Food, a television series where Oliver travelled to inspire everyday people in Rotherham, Yorkshire, to cook healthy meals.
In June 2008, Oliver launched a restaurant, Jamie’s Italian, his first high street business venture, in Oxford, England. At its peak, there were 42 Jamie’s Italian restaurants in the UK. The brand was franchised and includes branches in the UAE, Australia (which Oliver part-bought back in November 2016 after its founders went bankrupt), Canada, Cyprus, Iceland, Ireland, Russia, Turkey, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Our data reveals that 2011 was a Concentrated Life Path significant year for Jamie Oliver
Let’s refer back to the lines of data in the above table and take a careful look at the line of code in play for Jamie in 2011. There are two Double 9’s in play which represent massive endings and troubled times and there are also two 9-8’s in play which always indicate a dramatic shift happening… Bottom line is, 2011 was always coded to be a difficult year for the man, so what exactly happened?
In 2011 Oliver, an advocate of cooking meals from scratch and using local produce, caused controversy after it turned out the sauces used in Jamie’s Italian in Glasgow were from an industrial park almost 400 miles (640 kilometres) away in Bicester. That same year, he came under fire for lack of food safety protections in his restaurants and illnesses associated with under-cooking mincemeat that may have been contaminated with E. coli.
Oliver was criticised for underestimating the cost of supposedly cheap food he encouraged poor people to prepare for themselves, also for an unrealistic view of poverty in Britain and round the Mediterranean. Cookery writer and poverty campaigner Jack Monroe stated that Oliver’s comments “support damaging myths that poor people are only poor because they spend their money on the wrong things, rather than being constrained by time, equipment, knowledge or practicalities”. Monroe added, “When I was living on £10 a week for food, because of mistakes with housing benefit payments, I didn’t need a hug. I needed a fiver, just to have a little bit more to eat. I didn’t need [a trip] to Sicily to see how the street cleaners ate, I needed someone to point out that the 21p can of kidney beans could be the staple ingredient in a nutritious meal. I needed practical advice about what to do with the tins of food given to me by the food bank.”
And it didn’t end there…
In 2011, Oliver set up Barbecoa, a barbecued meat-based restaurant with his friend, American barbecue expert Adam Perry Lang. There were two outlets, both in London, one in Piccadilly and a second in St Pauls. In 2014 the Piccadilly outlet voluntarily closed for 24 hours after hygiene inspectors gave it the second-lowest rating. The Times reported they had found mouse droppings, mouldy carcasses and out-of-date meat. In February 2018, JORG confirmed that they had “instructed a firm of real estate agents to ascertain the potential value and market suitability of two of our sites”. On 19 February 2018, Barbecoa Ltd went into administration, with Oliver immediately buying back the St Paul’s site in a pre-packed agreement via a new subsidiary.
Are you now starting to connect the dots as to why in this piece of ground-breaking research entitled Jamie Oliver Numerology Case Study, we are revealing to you using nothing other than his core numbers (i.e. his DOB and Full Birth Name mathematically modelled by us into lines of annual code) that what has happened to-date, experience wise, in Jamie Oliver’s life is not as random as we might like to think…
Karmic Number 19 in play from 2013 to 2016
This is when things started to go pear-shaped for Jamie Oliver’s Empire and remember that it was in 2014 when his brother in law joined him in the business. Referring back to these years in the above table note that they all have as their RED Experience Number 19//1. Thing about Karmic Number 19 is it is a ruthless number to have in play experience wise, because it is “looking” at the relationship between yourself (1) and others (9). So, if you, or those around you (which if you are the business owner, links you to their actions as collateral damage) are not acting in the best interests of everyone and if you are busy enriching yourself at the expense of others, then the karmic debt number 19 will bring forth circumstances which will wreak havoc in your life given that they exist in order to teach you a huge lesson around how not to be…
And in 2017, 2018 and 2019 it all went BANG!
Sadly, during these three years, coded with RED Experience Number 17//8 (remember, the number is Jamie’s two karmic lessons) it went bang, and he lost everything. This case study shows the dark [negative] side of a number 8 karmic lesson, whereas the recent study which we published on Jurgen Klopp, shows the positive side, the exact opposite experience wise, success not failure. Bottom line is, when your karmic lesson presents itself along your life path number line, you will know from the result, whether you have lived up to what was expected of you learning wise, or not. That’s why it is so very important to know and understand your 365 Pin Code and to have your life path decoded and explained to you, Applied Numerology Style, so that you can engage in next level strategic thinking and planning. Imagine if Jamie Oliver had had this intelligence to hand years back, before it ALL went bang…
There’s a tough road ahead for Jamie but he’s definitely not down and out…
The year 2020 will bring much struggle and change. The enormous impact of this fallout will be felt massively family wise and personal attainment wise. How do we know this? His RED Experience Number for 2020 is 23//5 and he is born in the month of May, therefore the numbers align, as do they for his Personal Attainment Number (TKSPE in his birth chart) and his Shadow Professional Attainment Number (TSSPR in his birth chart). It doesn’t end there because 2020 brings with it the Number 4 Universal Energy (2020 = 2+0+2+0 = 4) and so the number 4 will target him in the Shadow (Emotional) Family, Shadow Personal Attainment (TSSPE in birth chart), Professional Attainment (TSSPR in Birth chart) and World / Career (where the number 22, reduces down to a 4).
Karmic Lesson Number 8 has taught him his greatest business success lesson ever!
Bottom line is, 2020 is going to be a pretty brutal year for Jamie Oliver on all fronts. On a positive note though, it heralds the end of his Number 8 karmic lesson. Importantly, what he and other people who have the Master Number 22 as well as Karmic Lesson Number 8 coded into their 365 Pin Code Numerology can extract value wise from this experience / case study, is that to succeed long-term with the master number 22 in play, you simply have to develop your business / financial acumen and critical thinking skills. Stated another way, you can’t simply “farm out” or “outsource” these business-critical success competencies to someone else (a trusted partner / friend / family member etc…) in the hope that they will make up for your financial and business management inefficiencies. Be sure to watch the video below because you’re going to really learn something powerful!
2021 heralds a Massive New Beginning for Jamie Oliver!
2021 brings a brand new beginning for Jamie, but the number 19 is again in play and so he best ensure that whatever he starts is well aligned with what Karmic Debt Number 19 intends, self-gain wise and others-gain wise. If he gets it right, he will find a renewed level of responsibility again in 2022 through to 2024 and that could culminate in a very positive emotional life path experience in 2025.
