How long has your business been established and how did you come to own/manage the business?
We have been running for 12 days now.
I started in hospitality in Noosa Heads when I was 16 years old at a cocktail bar in Sunshine Beach.
For the last 18 Years I have been traveling and working around the world in cocktail bars and restaurants.
Four years ago I opened a venue called the Chophouse in Falls Creek in the Australian alps.
And now I will be travelling between Noosa and Falls operating two epic venues.
