Partnership brews up ‘Deadly’ new offering
Noosa Council, Queensland’s, Peregian Digital Hub has launched a ‘barception’ service – an on-site barista and reception service – to be operated by a local not-for-profit Indigenous enterprise.
The new offering forms part of Council’s efforts to build the Hub as a world class working environment that supports local technology talent and attracts innovators to the Shire.
Council has partnered with SevGen Indigenous Corporation who will operate the barception service as part of their work to provide opportunities for young talent through its ‘Deadly Espresso’ initiative.
SevGen currently operates other Deadly Espresso sites across the region, including a coffee kiosk at Council’s Reviva Recycling Shop at Doonan.
Councillor Brian Stockwell, said, “Deadly Espresso is innovating the way young Indigenous people gain new skills and learn about small business, so it’s a very fitting partnership to welcome the enterprise to the Hub.
“The Hub currently accommodates a mix of emerging and established technology enterprises as well as individual entrepreneurs, which is a great environment for a complementary social enterprise to thrive alongside.”
SevGen Director Terri Waller said she’s thrilled to be expanding the ‘Deadly Espresso’ service to the Hub.
“We have received many messages of support from the Peregian Beach community who are excited to have us here,” Ms Waller said.
“This will be a great environment for our Deadly mob to grow and develop their skills.”
