Preparados, listos, ya – ready, set, go!

At the beginning of this year we contacted a company called Outreach here in Dunedin.  Alix Lucas-Fyfe and Richard Fyfe and their team organized & motivated us to revamp our whole business and the way we get things done around here.

Big cheers to you guys – we might be still doing everything by hand if not for your vision – you managed to drag us kicking and screaming into the modern world!

Firebrand sat us down and we brainstormed ideas and their talent and interpretative skills turned the abstract into the cool reality you see today.

Keep checking us out for monthly specials, recipes, photos and other fun stuff!
