has helped a small café owner grow his business into a popular sushi bar on the Fraser Coast.
This sushi business first established contact with Melvin Wee of Sushi Machine in October 2009. Melvin not only helped them source the right equipment to fit with their small but growing sushi demand, but also ensured that the sushi shop did not overspend on unnecessary capital, given the size of their relatively small regional sushi market.
Melvin also provided considerable business consultancy expertise to the café so that they could avoid making mistakes in the sushi business.
Melvin’s expertise has guided them from being a ‘small cafe that happens to sell a little sushi’ into a ‘sushi bar’ regarded as one of the finest on the Fraser Coast. This transition has seen their sales figures consistently grow even during the toughest of the GFC period.
Flying in from his home in Perth to Hervey Bay in Queensland, Melvin took out the time to demonstrate to the staff not only the best practices in making high volumes of the best quality sushi rice, but also how to make great sushi as well as maximise investment in the equipment.
Attributing a tremendous amount of their business success to Melvin’s commitment, the sushi bar confirms that they will go right back to Sushi Machines Australia for new equipment, knowing they will get the best possible advice at the best possible price.
