BlueRidge Cafe Catering

MPREC is excited to announce their Blueridge Cafe social enterprise will be changing its business focus, expanding its services in the catering sector. 

While the Blueridge cafe and drive through will no longer be operating, the staff are excited to learn new skills and undertake new training courses, focusing on large-scale catering and hospitality services.

Retail Coordinator and Trainer Max Rabbett says the cafe will look to offer a larger range of menus for customers and businesses in Dubbo in the future.

“We plan to cater for a variety of different events and services,” he said.

“Our staff will be fully involved in planning the new menu, an exciting prospect and a first for some of them! The team are looking forward to refocusing their skills and building a bigger client and customer base from Dubbo businesses.”

“We really appreciate all the support we have received from the community and we look forward to this continued relationship.”

The cafe is taking suggestions, so get in quick if you want your favourite on the new catering menus!
