New Concept Coffeehouse & Restaurant on the Mid North Coast NSW.
This project is very close to my heart and was born out of a desire to give back to the community/town that has become my home. Forster/Tuncurry has grown and is also an increasingly popular holiday location for thousands of tourists each year.
Over the past 17 years that I have lived on the Mid North Coast, I've come to know a lot of the people in the town, including other small business owners and gained valuable insight into the needs of the community as a whole. It's that close interaction with members of the community that first triggered the idea for my project.
One of the main features of the business will include an on-going, inhouse training facility catering to some 80-100 trainees annually (something that is currently unavailable on this scale locally), which will create employment opportunities for many young, talented individuals.
Involvement in local community events will be another focus of the business, as will in-house functions such as wedding receptions etc. creating yet further opportunities for employment. There are also plans, in draft stage, which will involve our local Community Youth Group, for which they have already shown their enthusiasm.
How would I use the money raised?
A suitable property has been located and is currently on the market for lease but is in need of repair/renovations which would also include the installation of a 4mtr lift for disabled access to the premises. It is in an ideal location (front) on the main street of the local shopping area, (back) large balcony over-looking one of our very beautiful lakes.
All contributions raised would be very gratefully received and go towards securing the property, thus taking it off the open market (properties of this size are rare in Forster) and for the much needed renovations.
How else can you help?
If you believe in what I am trying to achieve and show your support for my project, the only other thing that I would ask is that you tell as many people as you can about my project, friends, family and acquantances or anyone else you can think of, who may be able to get behind my project and help me reach my target.
So please, help me spread the word and let's make this happen together.
Thank you for your support
