Del McCloud – Cafe Entrepreneur
I came from the medical background and needed a new venture. I searched the Internet and found out about the Café Entrepreneurs Bootcamp, which is the only hands-on workshop available in Australia to help people entering the hospitality industry.
So I booked myself into the workshop and flew to Melbourne from Queensland.
I found the workshop excellent in a lot of areas such as hiring staff, business planning and leasing. The challenge for me is to have the right staff so I can enjoy my lifestyle of playing golf twice per week. The hiring and recruitment system Rita shared in the workshop was very unconventional and enlightening. It gave me the confidence that I will be able to find and keep great staff.
The leasing information is also valuable. I have since renegotiated the leasing terms using techniques taught by Rita. The landlord has agreed to a $5000 reduction in rent per year, a contribution of $40,000 to fit out my shop, PLUS 6 months Rent free. I was rapt and got on the phone to Rita to share this great news straight away.
I recommend anyone who is thinking of starting or buying into a food premises, to attend to this workshop. It will save you money and boost your confidence.
