Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 5th 2008
30 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 6, 2008 MB 2008 TRUE LOCAL BUSINESS AWARDS WINNERS FEATURE Cafe/Coffee Shop Rosabelle Cross from Rosabelle's. FROM a competitive field of finalists in the Cafe/Coffee Shop category of the True Local Business Awards, Rosabelle's of Drummoyne forged ahead to take the trophy. With a staff of 18, including seven professional chefs, Rosabelle's owner Gabriel Cross says this recent success is due to a solid foundation of strong teamwork. ''It was very good news. I was shocked! We were all along doing the very best to give our diners what they want, at all times, not just when we were nominated for the award,'' he said. ''It is the first time we have won such an award after only 16 months in business, so I want to thank all our customers and our staff. Now there is the challenge to please our customers even more, to listen to what they want and deliver it, to make them very happy.'' Gift Shop/Specialty Shop Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas with Terrill Riley- Gibson from Balcony Living. GIFT and homewares retailer BalconyLiving of Concord swept the pool this year in the Gift Shop/Specialty Shop category of the True Local Business Awards. Owners Terrill Riley-Gibson and husband Andrew Gibson and their staff have invested obvious passion in providing beautiful furniture, decorative items and design services to loyal clients, many of whom have also become good friends. ''We are thrilled and very humbled to win the award. Even though we have won many business awards over four years, we never take anything for granted and are always delighted,'' Terrill Riley-Gibson said. ''It's also a wonderful 'farewell' from our very loyal supporters.'' BalconyLiving homewares will continue to be available online after the owners sadly close their doors on December 24 due to health challenges currently faced by Mr Gibson. Motor Vehicle Dealer The staff from Homebush Commercial Vehicles. WHEN small, family-owned business Homebush Commercial Vehicles took out the Motor Vehicle Dealer award ahead of two large franchise dealerships, it was extremely rewarding and humbling for its hard-working team. Owners and brothers Bekir and John Boncukcular accepted the trophy with sales manager Dave Cates with enormous gratitude to their customers. Speaking on behalf of the owners, Mr Cates said: ''We were very excited and surprised to win the award, and very grateful because the business is only two years old. It's great because we're only a small dealership but we aim to do everything very well.'' Hairdresser Anthony and Margherita Savoia of HC Hairperfection at Concord. IN ITS first year in business, Concord West hair salon HC Hairperfection has taken its strong commitment to exceptional customer service to ultimate success, winning the highly-competitive Hairdresser category of the True Local Business Awards 2008. ''We were felt very honoured and surprised to win this award after only one year in business, and are extremely grateful to all our clients for their loyalty to our salon,'' owner Margherita Savoia said. Ms Savoia considered the salon's family-friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices were major elements in this success.
