Last year the CW Café of the Year 2018 title went to Alowishus Delicious of Bundaberg, Queensland. We recently caught up with owner, Tracey McPhee to ask her about her experience last year and what taking out the title and $25,000 top prize meant to her and her team. Tracey said “the whole team at Alowishus Delicious were engaged and proactive during the promotion and it created a great sense of camaraderie. It really brought the team together”.
Sustainability is certainly a “buzz word” that has been thrown around for some time, particularly more recently and is sure to impact many food service outlets including cafés. Whether it be ensuring your coffee is 100% sustainably sourced, reducing food waste, recycling coffee waste or recycling other waste, customers are definitely more aware of how outlets are trying to minimise their ecological footprint.
