Fun Filled 2020 !

Acacia Cove Village

It is February already and the usual hustle and bustle is back in Auckland. I’m sure some are trying to get back into old routines and some are trying to break some. One in particular, is to write 2020 and not 2019.

It is February already and the usual hustle and bustle is back in Auckland. I’m sure some are trying to get back into old routines and some are trying to break some. One in particular, is to write 2020 and not 2019.

The Acacia Cove Residents had a wonderful Hawaiian Evening the end of January and after having a scrumptious meal, they danced the night away!

As some of you will know, we started construction on two new villas towards the end of last year. They are finished now, and the new residents have moved in and are enjoying all Acacia Cove has to offer.

Rocco is a de-sexed Staffy.
(his dad was a pure blue staffy and mum was a red/white staffy).

Unfortunately due to a change in our living situation, this beautiful boy needs a forever home, where they will be patient and kind.
He is a very sweet dog, with the most lovely nature, very friendly, happy boy and loves nothing more than pleasing his owner. 

He has the most beautiful nature, loves hugs and cuddling up on the couch with you.
Can get excitable around other dogs as he just wants to play, once he's taught his boundaries, he is very good.

He has been an inside dog since a puppy, never slept outside at night, must never be chained up. Must sleep inside.  
Enjoys the outdoors, the beach and loves the water.
He does not bark unless there is a reason to.
Best suited for a home without a cat.

We then look at the equipment you may need to use and commercial kitchen food safety requirements - from refrigeration and extraction systems to types of ovens and coffee machines, flooring and much more.

HOW TO COST
We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
Celia Hay, director of the New Zealand School of Food and Wine and hospitality entrepreneur having established 10 different business and has a wealth of knowledge about how to establish and then grow a business.
