We're going to be upgrading our kitchen in a few months time - currently we share our kitchen with the cafe next door (sounds weird I know, but it works pretty well and is totally legal), but we are going to be splitting the kitchen with 2 goals in mind.
Firstly, segregating the cafe kitchen from the backpacker kitchen to keep the health dept even more happy than they currently are and provide the cafe with an easier workspace.
Secondly, by adding more wash troughs in the laundry, more burners etc, we are aiming to increase the number of people we are licensed for by 18, which brings us up to a full occupancy of 103.
Going to be expensive and disruptive but should be worth it - probably goign to cost about AUD 250000...should be happening in June/July (our low season).
Hopefully the planning process goes well and we get it done this year without hiccups!
