My dream to open a Cafe.

Hi again, it is Suki here! So in my last post I spoke about one of my passions in life which is coffee. I thought I would expand on this and discuss with you one of my dreams. From when I was young I have had an interest in food and drink. To me a meal is not just about filling your belly but instead it is an experience, a memory. So many tastes, smells and sensations painting an edible picture.

 

 

When I was younger my aunty and uncle owned a café and I always remember going there on a Saturday afternoon, helping them wash up and serve food. This was my first experience of working life and for me it was exciting. Since then I have had many jobs in cafes and restaurants in which I have moved up the ranks and worked as the manager. It has always come naturally to me serving people, having an eye for detail and the desire to create a product that people love. It has never really been enough though, to just manage a restaurant, I have aspirations to open my own. I have so much passion for this industry and so many ideas that I feel they are wasted on working for someone else. Don’t get me wrong, I have learnt a great deal from my experiences and I owe a lot of my passion to the people I have worked with over these years. I have always had an entrepreneurial mind set and I guess in life I want to be challenged. I now feel that the next natural step in my progression would be to have my own establishment. Unfortunately I do not have the financial means to fulfil my dream right now but I really hope that some day that will change…
