Store has new work for locals
When ambitious couple Alen and Paula Cranswick opened the doors of Bidyadanga’s new fast food outlet earlier this month, they also opened a window of opportunity for locals.
Known to the community as the friendly faces behind the Bidyadanga general store for three years, the Cranswicks recently took on their latest business venture, running a takeaway at the store with locally trained staff.
The takeaway officially opened for business a fortnight ago.
Mrs Cranswick said the takeaway was an ideal opportunity to support the community, and empower locals. “It’s about training and employing local people, offering healthy food, with all profits going back into the community.”
With healthy food options available on the menu, the takeaway promises efficient service, with more choice.
“We’ll be offering salads, sandwiches, roast chickens, lasagnes and vegetables,” she said.
“It’s about offering healthy meals at an affordable cost.” Mrs Cranswick said the takeaway would complement the supermarket’s trading hours, enabling customers to purchase food items and fuel at the weekends when the store was closed.
