Long hours, high rent, unrealiable staff… who would have thought that running your own business would be so hard. Not only do you have to ensure that the product you sell to customers is of the best quality, now you have to do your paperwork and worry about whether you actually made a profit this week. Paying staff, super and preparing your business activity statements… it’s a never ending battle and one that all businesses like yours struggle with. So why don’t you look after your customers and we’ll look after your books.
Cafe's and Restaurants
Open early for great coffee and home baked goods. Serving light meals, cakes and tasty treats.
Check them out of facebook and say hi to Ronnie the owner while you enjoy an awesome coffee (I hear their muffins are pretty good too). Tell them where you found their details and I might just score a free coffee for it.
Lutèce, the French word for the ancient city Lutetia, was once part of the ancient Roman Empire and is today known as the centre of good food and style, Paris.
Luckily, you can now get the same beautiful French food in Brisbane.
Lutèce Bistro & Wine Bar in Bardon is the latest French cuisine venture for renowned Brisbane Chef Romain Bapst.
Offering traditional French fare, the Lutèce Bistro & Wine Bar menu has a modern twist with an Alsatian spirit, thanks to Mr Bapst’s rich Strasbourgeois heritage. The restaurant is also the only venue in Brisbane that serves the exquisite pressed duck – a rare French delicacy dating back to the 19th century.
Romain Bapst is perhaps best known in Brisbane dining circles for his 13 year tenure at Eagle Street institution II Centro, and later two years at Drift Milton and Brookwater.
The boring accountants have been lucky enough to test Lutece several times now and the food has always been divine. You simply cannot go past Chef Romain’s stuffed pigs trotter or sand crab lasagne on the menu.
How has this quiet sleepy town changed? Those who haven’t visited for a couple of years would be surprised by the hustle and bustle.
This is where mother and daughter team (Judy & Jemima) took on Zarraffa’s franchise.
Roasting their own beans means Zarraffa’s Coffee produces individually perfect cups of coffee – every time. Established in 1996, Zarraffa’s was originally a roasting house operating from the backstreets of Southport on the Gold Coast that has grown into one of the most popular coffee chains in the state.
Be tempted by decadent hot chocolates, cold fusion drinks and a delicious coffee menu to suit all tastes… and don’t forget to say hello to Jemima while you are there!
How we help these business owners
Franchisees face unique situations imposed by franchisors. Having to use a particular chart of accounts, financials format and accounting software. Tight reporting deadlines to the head office mean their bookkeeping needs to be done quickly and accurately to satisfy franchisor’s requirements. We have a number of franchisees as well as franchisors as clients and it is important that we abide by these strict guidelines and reporting deadlines.
The classic takeout option of fish and chips took on a new dimensionwith the arrival of Salty Sailor (also known as Phunky Dory or Catch & Kiss). Typically, the local fish and chips shop was your only destination for battered and fried goodness, but when Yuling and her partner Nathan established a stall at the Eat Street Markets the game changed forever.
After captivating taste buds at Eat Street, they went mobile, cruising around Brisbane in ‘Claudette’ – a beautifully upgraded van to take its impressive menu to other corners of town.
The menu offers dishes such as BBQ Moreton Bat bugs, salt and pepper prawns, hand cut calamari, sweet potato fries and grilled and infused Atlantic salmon.
Salty Sailor sources its seafood from local fishermen that employ responsible fishing practices, combined with recycled, biodegradable and sustainably sourced packaging to ensure minimal environmental impact.
So not only great for our bellies but also for the environment! How awesome is that?
