MEDIA RELEASE 7 July 201

Im delighted to be able to recognise tonight just a handful of the NSWs top cafs,

restaurants and catering businesses out of a total of more than 15,000 across the

state.

As we all know, running a caf, restaurant or catering business involves an incredible

amount of passion, hard work and dedication which often results in very little

recognition.

Tonights Awards are all about putting the focus squarely on those individuals whose

extraordinary efforts go into making NSWs hospitality industry the outstanding

success that is today.

Some of the winning businesses in NSW will compete at the national Awards for

Excellence held at Peninsula in Melbourne on Monday 30 October.
