Stockland wants more homegrown entrepreneurs

STOCKLAND Hervey Bay is sounding the call for local entrepreneurs to take up business opportunities at the new shopping centre, following its $116 million redevelopment.

Stockland is partnering with leading franchisors, local businesses, Westpac, the Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce and Mission Australia to host a free Franchisee Information Evening.

The event will be held in the Stockland Hervey Bay Shoreline cafe court on Tuesday, August 5, from 6pm to 8pm.

Attendees are invited and encouraged to pre-register for the event at www.herveybayleasing.com.au/stockland.

Stockland Hervey Bay centre manager Paul Kelsey said retail space for speciality stores and food and beverage retailers was filling fast. 

"We want to offer this unique opportunity for local entrepreneurs to learn more about new franchise opportunities and, literally, get in on the ground floor," he said.

"We have a limited amount of speciality retail space still available and we also have some very obvious opportunities for new food retailers to set up shop in the new Shoreline cafe court.

"With more than 135,000 customers visiting the centre in our first 10 days of trade.

"Zambrero in the Shoreline cafe court has been doing a roaring trade, and Muffin Break and Kick Juice & Go Sushi are thriving too.

"We'd like to encourage more homegrown, local entrepreneurs to establish their own thriving small businesses at the new Stockland Hervey Bay."

Mr Kelsey said when the redevelopment was completed later this year, the centre would feature more than 110 retailers and would be the biggest shopping centre between Maroochydore and Rockhampton.
