Last year the CW Café of the Year 2018 title went to Alowishus Delicious of Bundaberg, Queensland. We recently caught up with the 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”.
Cafés registered this year should make sure they get their customers involved and use social media to get lots of exposure just like Alowishus Delicious did in 2018. When the winner was announced Tracey explained “it was just thrilling, everyone was so excited, my heart was racing. We had a great response from the community too who had followed our journey and were wanting to congratulate us”.
With the winnings, Alowishus Delicious hosted a big post-Christmas party and has also purchased a much-anticipated cake fridge. What would your café do if they were to win the $25,000 prize in 2019? Register today at www.cwcafeoftheyear.com.au/cafe/register
Vote for us for 2019. If Alowishus wins this year we are donating $5,000 each to these two local charities:
A little bit about Angels Community Group: Angels Community Group, a registered charity & community-based organisation, was formed in April 2015 when founding members Kerri Savidge and Sue Tasker realised the power that comes from giving people a purpose. This has been accomplished by creating a supportive environment where people experiencing a sense of loss (the loss of a loved one, a job, a relationship or even the loss of identity or life direction) are able to achieve or regain the confidence and skills necessary to lead meaningful social and economic lives through personal growth, a sense of worth, friendship and social networks, career development, productive employment and long-term financial stability.
A passionate organisation dedicated to giving back to the community, we are committed to extending our range of social enterprises and charitable projects into the future. This spirit of giving is championed by our Board, staff and volunteers and in addition to transforming lives (our own included), we wholeheartedly believe in new beginnings, broadened horizons, seizing opportunities and smashing stigmas. We also live by our motto that you help yourself by helping others!
