Eateries flock to food guide

Broken Hill Small Business Association’s second Food Guide was published yesterday after a stronger than anticipated interest in the inaugural edition published in July.
President of Broken Hill Small Business Association Dylan Stone said potential customers can find all the information they need about eating and dining in Broken Hill all in one place.
“Customers are able to search the Broken Hill Food Court’s Facebook page, and locate their favourite participating eateries’ menu and contact details quickly and easily.
“This increases the exposure and turnover of our local food businesses, too,” he said.
Mr Stone and Administrator of Facebook’s Food Court page, Georgie Blore, collaborated to design a plan that would allow all local food businesses to submit their menus to Ms Blore to include on her Facebook page.
“What a wonderful idea it is, for our businesses to have a platform where they can all put their menus etc. on display.
“To also have contact details, so that what they have to offer is in the one place,” Mrs Blore said.
The association’s Vice President Phil O’Keefe said they are currently in discussions with other stakeholders to discuss advertising the Broken Hill Food Guide in other places besides Facebook.
“We’re talking with other bodies so locals and tourists who do not have Facebook can still find all the information relating to the Broken Hill Food Guide,” Mr O’Keefe said.
Mr Stone is celebrating this initiative as yet another achievement for the Small Business Association, following from a rental assistance initiative in June and the April launch of the contactless food delivery program by Broken Hill Property Services.
The Broken Hill Small Business Association convenes for a working-dinner meeting on the last Wednesday of the month at a venue determined at the previous monthly meeting. Contact Dylan Stone on 0455 677 756 any time after 3pm weekdays for more information or to register your business.
