Owner of Cafe Envy in Mooloolaba and Cotton Tree on the Sunshine Coast earns top honours at the 2014 Asia/Pacific Business Excellence Awards

The prestigious Asia/Pacific Business Excellence Awards ceremony honors the accomplishments, achievements, value and contributions of small businesses and their owners worldwide ... "the best of the best" in pro-growth, small business practices, and outstanding entrepreneurial results, in an exciting setting of innovation, networking, education and incredible results.

The Asia/Pacific Business Excellence Awards were held at the QT Resort on the Gold Coast, on Friday 7th March, 2014, where local Sunshine Coast Café Envy owner, Nicole Hoffman, took out the prestigious “Entrepreneur of the Year” Award.           

“I am greatly honored to have taken out the winner award for “Entrepreneur Of The Year.  What an amazing recognition.  My first cafe sat 25 customers and soon after opening, we had a daily line up out the door for people waiting to be seated.  This was a true reflection of what type of service Café Envy were offering (which was just a natural thing to do - I like to make people happy).  

We had no choice apart from opening a larger premise.  This then led to wanting to replicate the successful recipe we had created in another location (with Café Envy now located in Mooloolaba and Cotton Tree).   I not only wanted to prove this to myself, though also to allow more potential customers the opportunity to experience what Café Envy had to offer.

Receiving this award has given us the recognition for all of our hard work and gives us confidence in continuing our journey of growth and success with Cafe Envy.  Together with my business coach, Bruce Campbell, I have completed our Franchise model and am currently seeking the perfect applicants.  I won't just pick anyone; my integrity is too important to me.

Thanks to my husband Chad, and our amazing team at Café Envy, together with all of our customers, who have supported us, and allowed us the opportunity to add value to our Sunshine Coast community.  We’ve loved having the opportunity to provide you with ‘food made with soul’, and giving you healthy options for you to enjoy in our unique bohemian cafes that feature vintage decor, local art and eclectic pieces.  Please come in and celebrate with me in taking out this prestigious award.” 

Café Envy look forward to being of continued service to you.        

Nicole Hoffman
