Cafe83 and Restaurant Brand Style

The way to the heart is through the stomach, it certainly was with Mo’s Melt in the Mouth Millionaires Shortbread at Cafe83. I’m definitely an advocate, but thats not the whole experience.

Tommy the newest edition to the kitchen brings new delights. Lunch was amazing. I had a mixed bean couscous with butterfly chicken. Yom. 

After a fast and furious lunch meeting with the lovely folks at Cafe83, we knew exactly what we needed to do to support their ambitious growth – Facebook Marketing.

It is the best part of the job, meeting exciting, passionate and ambitious people, you can feel their energy and drive, matched with Ash and I’s excitement and creative marketing experience makes for an excellent team.

Working closely with customers to help support and grow their business makes them feel like an extended member of the family.

No one saw it coming and how it was to impact all of us #StayHomeStaySafeSaveLives against the Coronavirus. 

We went into crisis mode to support Cafe83 and its community by promoting a special take-a-way and deliver service with price reductions to support the most vulnerable as the rest of the nation panic bought.

The Government applied sanctions to all the hospitality businesses to minimise the spread of COVID-19. Cafe 83 has since been offering a takeaway delivery service to help feed the local community, support keyworkers, and try to keep some normality in the area.
