The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-05-27T07:04:05Z Nexon announces multi-year contract with Craveable Brands: Oporto, Red Rooster and Chicken Treat 2019-05-27T07:04:05Z nexon-announces-multi-year-contract-with-craveable-brands-oporto-red-rooster-and-chicken-treat Nexon Asia Pacific, a leading cloud and managed service provider, has announced a $5.6 million multi-year contract with Craveable Brands. Craveable Brands - the parent company behind three iconic Australian brands - Oporto, Red Rooster and Chicken Treat - has solidified their relationship with Nexon by including managed network connectivity and cloud calling across all 530 Australian restaurants.  Nexon’s relationship with Craveable Brands commenced 5 years ago, when the organisation, previously trading under Quick Service Restaurant holdings, engaged Nexon to deliver their corporate Unified Communications (Skype for Business) and network needs. This new contract will extend the partnership to include the deployment and management of internet access services, cloud calling, cloud managed security, wireless and switching at all 530 restaurants.  With current IT contracts expiring, Craveable Brands sought out a partner to manage the transition to nbn™ access network and offer improved support, service and management for all network, telephony and edge devices.  “Our goal was to provide a reliable and secure network for our Franchise Partners, consolidating to a single partner”, said Paul Kennedy, CIO at Craveable Brands. Nexon was chosen as Craveable Brands’ new provider after a thorough tender process.  “We needed a partner who could provide a cost-effective network across nearly 600 sites, delivering improved customer experience” added Paul. “More than that, Nexon’s solution model made sense. They already had retail experience, so we asked their customers to tell us their experiences on top of what we already knew. Their customers gave us the confidence to award them the contract” said Paul.  “The retail industry faces a challenging time at present. Retailers need to have a secure, reliable omni-channel presence and the migration to nbn will help keep systems online and support the business to run smoothly,” said Barry Assaf, Chief Executive Officer at Nexon Asia Pacific. “Many retailers, like Craveable Brands, need a unified strategy to transition, connect and secure core technology to provide the experiences their customers expect. Reliable connectivity and communication between retail restaurants, warehouses, head office and on-line systems underpin the strategy” added Barry.  Using technology from Cisco Meraki, Nexon is standardising all in-restaurant WAN, LAN and wireless devices to provide complete visibility and centralised management. This streamlined approach will deliver the security, flexibility and enhanced application performance needed by retailers. Nexon will migrate all corporate-owned and franchise-owned restaurants to a secure, stable network and telephony system on the nbn™ access network.  “Having a single provider with a strong provisioning and support model gives us peace of mind,” said Tyler Mason, Enterprise Services Manager at Craveable Brands. “Nexon will provide us with a standardised environment and increased restaurant security. This will enable us to thrive and adapt in today’s market so we can continue to deliver exceptional customer experiences across our restaurant network” said Tyler. “We are excited to extend our partnership with Craveable Brands and look forward to working together to increase their advantage in today’s market and beyond” said Nexon’s Client Engagement Lead, Nevien Badawi.

Top rated “build your own pizza” concept, Slice of Brooklyn, looks to expand across Australia with crowd funding, offering a slice of the pie for investors. 2019-05-26T05:13:25Z top-rated-build-your-own-pizza-concept-slice-of-brooklyn-looks-to-expand-across-australia-with-crowd-funding-offering-a-slice-of-the-pie-for-investors-3 After a blazing start (pun intended) to their concept store in Adelaide, Slice of Brooklyn is looking to fund their expansion to a suburb near you. Slice of Brooklyn is looking to raise funds to expand into Tea Tree Plaza Westfield in Adelaide and in the Melbourne metro area with corporate locations and begin the franchising process to expand quickly to suburbs all around the country. Investment in Slice of Brooklyn will begin at 100 dollars and up to the entire funding amount. What’s the upside? Slice of Brooklyn will be profit sharing dividends as soon as possible, a potential to own a part of the next big fast casual franchise in Australia and lots and lots of discount pizza. Slice of Brooklyn founder, Ned Hasanoff (who is actually from Brooklyn and perfected his craft in NYC) explains his investment offer in a quick and simple way, just like his pizza. “We’re giving investors a good portion of our company for a modest investment. We want them to share in our success as we grow as co-owners of our business, that’s why we are offering things like free or discount pizzas, profit sharing and a chance to have a part in the next big fast casual food offering in Australia”. Coming from NYC, where everything is supersized, we don’t doubt his goals to become Australia’s fastest growing and highest rated fast casual player within the near future. Fast casual dining is the fastest growing area in dining in Australia over the last decade. With companies giving consumers fresher, more natural and better priced options, Slice of Brooklyn has the potential to become the next concept to make it big. With their endlessly customized fresh pizza’s, top reviews and ratings from critics, all natural hand tossed dough with just 5 ingredients, and the furiously hot stone base oven that churns out pizzas in just over 2 minutes, Slice of Brooklyn ticks all the boxes investors are looking for. Along with the Adelaide concept store, the proof of concept from overseas data is very compelling. Fast casual build your own pizza concepts have taken the US by storm, opening up over a thousand stores since 2012 and attracting millions in funding and billions in sales. The combination of speed, price and quality translates well to the Australian market, where a fresh and healthier option for pizzas is lacking. Just like its founder’s fast talking and fast walking qualities and with expressions of interest for fundraising now underway on the crowdfunding platform Birchal, this pizza concept is definitely on track for growth the only way it knows how: blazing fast.

Growing up surrounded by the inner workings of the kitchen, it was in this little restaurant in Thailand that Chef Nut developed his love and desire to transform people’s lives with food. Nut was working full-time in the kitchen from the age of 13. Chef Nut went on to learn under and work alongside Michelin Star & Iron Chef Chumpol Jangprai to create fresh, tasty and original sauce blends which still stand as the base for the P’Nut dishes today and can be tasted in the new Asian infusion menu to be unveiled at P’NUT Street Noodles restaurants across Australia.   Nut named his restaurant after himself to instil a sense of trust between the brand and the public, to allow his food and service to be a true reflection of himself as the first and only “nut” who is “nuts about noodles”. The P’Nut brand has grown to represent handcrafted, authentic and original flavour imported from its home-grown source. Nothing says quality like P’Nut.   Celebrate Mother’s Day with an Award-Winning Perth Ham from P.

On the eve of Tigerlily's 20th Birthday and comeback show; models were sporting dainty and natural looking 1000 HOUR Eyelashes by 1000 HOUR Lash Director Melanie Burnicle – in collaboration with Makeup Artist Lara Karamian for Lancôme this fresh natural sun kissed look was created for the show. Tigerlily shares the same youthful curiosity as the 1000 HOUR brand. Tigerlily CEO Chris Buchanan said, "Tigerlily is one of Australia's most admired and respected brands. At Fashion Week, we will be presenting a more elevated apparel offering - think linens, silks and luxe fabrications, new swim silhouettes with classic Tigerlily prints. We’re proud to be supported by iconic Australian DIY beauty brand, 1000 HOUR, as our lash sponsor for such a special show for Tigerlily.” The show’s 1000 HOUR Lash Director and Makeup Artist Melanie Burnicle said, “My secret to creating a natural look for Tigerlily’s show was 1000 HOUR's individual lashes. I love working with Australian brands and 1000 HOUR lashes are easy to apply especially in a fast paced environment like backstage. The lashes are great for creating anything from a fresh faced day look or adding a some fabulous drama to your makeup.” Melanie’s step-by-step how-to and top tips to create the natural lash look sported on the runway today: Step 1 - Curl your lashes Curl your lashes! This helps to create a base for the false lashes and allows for a seamlessly natural look. Doing this before Mascara helps to protect your lashes from breakage. If you choose to curl once mascara is applied be very gentle and careful on releasing lashes as mascara will stick the lashes to the curler. Step 2 - Apply mascara Apply mascara before applying false lashes. This helps create structure and allows you to better judge the placement of the individual lashes especially for the natural look. Mel’s Tip: Re-applying mascara at the end of the process will add more drama to the look. Step 3 - Prep individual lashes Apply a small amount of lash glue to the back of your hand and allow it dry a little (this means you don’t need to sit still for as long waiting for it to dry on the eye) and line up the Individual lashes close to the glue so you can see what you are working with. Mel’s Tip: If you need to, trim the individual false lashes before applying to ensure they aren’t too much longer than your natural lashes. This will help the false lashes to blend, creating a really natural look. Step 4 - Use tweezers to apply each lash Use tweezers so you can angle the lash application and help you to place the lashes flat into your lash line. Remember to make sure that the lashes don’t sit higher on the skin. If so, they will be visible especially in a natural makeup look. Mel’s Tip: Remember to look at your eye shape as most eyes aren’t symmetrical, so you may need 3 lashes on one eye and 4 on the other. If your brows sit low, don’t add too much length in the lashes you apply on inner corners as it will create a smaller eyelid. If your eyes are very round, don’t apply lashes right on the outer corner as it will follow your eye shape and drag the eye down and not lift it up for a youthful appearance. 1000 HOUR Individual Lashes are available in two styles Short to Medium and Medium to Long RRP $9.49. 1000 HOUR's range of false lashes are available in Priceline stores nationwide or online at ABOUT 1000HOUR: This iconic brand has been in the beauty business for over 25 years and is well known for high quality products by makeup artists and beauty lovers alike. 1000HOUR boasts product collections ranging from the ever-popular Eyelash and Eyebrow Dye Kits to false lashes, hair colour mascaras and DIY beauty tools to enhance your at-home beauty routine.

Natavo™ Natural Avocado is already being sold in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Philippines and France.   Naturo Director, Ross Harris explains, “The global avocado trade is valued at AUD $18 billion* or approximately 5.5 million tonnes (2018), however due to the seasonality, fragility and quick-browning nature of the fruit it has been a challenging ingredient for the food service industry to use.  To date, there’s been a lot of guess work, high wastage and expense.   “Our technology has changed all that as we switch off the enzyme which causes avocado to go brown, while still preserving its texture and taste.   “It’s now possible for the food service industry to access large quantities of perfectly ripe, ready-to-use, 100% pure natural avocado, with no additives or preservatives all year round.”   Natavo™ Natural Avocado benefits: 100% all-natural avocado Does not go brown for up to 10 days when refrigerated (even when packaging is opened)   Two years frozen shelf life from pack date (when unopened) 1kg – 5kg packets and single serve portions of chunks and smashed avocado No more guess work or waste Retains fresh avocado taste and texture Proven pathogen kill step Always ripe, consistent and ready to use Manufactured in a BRC AA grade facility Proven and safe technology first developed in 2016   See Natavo™ Natural Avocado at HOFEX A&W Foodservice stand - Booth No. 5F-300. 7-10 May 2019, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre   Enquiries can be directed to Naturo All Natural Technologies in Australia phone:  +61 (07) 5324 1417 (reception) or  +61 424 480 758 (during HOFEX) email:   --ENDS-   *Persistence Market Research and The Packer and FAO 2016:   For further information, interviews or additional images please contact: Trena-Louise Lyons, Newsroom PR.  0423 764 260 (within Australia)    +61 7 423 764 260 (international)   AVOCADO IMAGES CAN BE DOWNLOADED AT:     Picnic Box is launching in Melbourne just in time for Mother's Day 2019-05-02T08:37:51Z picnic-box-is-launching-in-melbourne-just-in-time-for-mother-s-day Founder and CEO Diane Stanbra came up with this innovative business in New Zealand,   7 years ago after attending an outdoor cinema event, thinking wouldn’t it be great if you could get a delicious, freshly-packed picnic at these types of events.

Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman describes it as an ‘iconic heritage asset.’   When the Pooleys bought Prospect House it had been used as a private home for more than five years and hadn’t undergone a significant renovation since the 1970s. It needed major remodelling and refurbishment to meet their vision for the property. John and Libby then incorporated an eclectic mix of furnishings and antiques from their private collection to give every space its own character.   ‘We’ve always loved restoring and renovating period properties. Prospect House was an ambitious project, but we’re delighted with what we’ve been able to achieve and are looking forward to sharing it with guests,’ says John.   Prospect House now has 12 guest suites, will accommodate up to 24 guests and, with a minimum staff to guest ratio of around 1:2, aims to attract guests looking for a luxurious experience with exceptional hospitality and service in a unique heritage location.   The restaurant at Prospect House celebrates the farmers and producers of Tasmania’s South East. Head Chef Kurstin Berriman’s menu focuses on seasonal and sustainable local produce, much of it sourced from nearby Coal River Valley. For example, the three-course dinner menu ($85) includes entrees such as Eel Escabeche or Westhaven Goats Cheese Pannacotta, main courses such as Rare Seared Wallaby Fillet or Crispy Skinned Line Caught Salmon, desserts such as Lemon Verbena Scented Mascarpone Tartlet or a Pyengana Cheddar cheese plate. Guests can enjoy fine Tasmanian wines, including a selection of cool climate Coal River Valley wines, and dine in the restaurant or under the stars.   Situated within an easy stroll, bike ride or short drive from the historic village of Richmond, Prospect House guests have plenty to occupy and entertain them. Signature activities include cycling, tennis, golf and bird watching. Prospect House also has its own apiary, where a thriving bee community produces honey for the restaurant kitchen.   Prospect House is an ideal base for visitors wanting to explore the Coal River Valley wine region, the World Heritage Listed Port Arthur Historic Site or Greater Hobart.   Accommodation at Prospect House starts from $350 per night including breakfast.   For more information visit:   ENDS   Image Link:   Be social: Insta: prospecthouseprivatehotel   For further information please contact: Tel 0415 290023   New Media App Launches To Kill Off The Press Release 2019-04-30T04:15:39Z new-media-app-launches-to-kill-off-the-press-release A new technology platform has launches tomorrow made just for you. This tech platform called Story Match® will change the way that you receive your story pitches. No more emails, no more press releases and no more hassling PRs (I promise not to be one of those…) First, watch this! In 1.5 minutes it will explain it all to you… Story Match® is a two sided market place App and Desktop platform that allows brands to pitch story ideas to journalists, at the same time allowing journalists to select only what topics of stories they want to receive. Journalists, like you, set up their profile using 6 simple steps. You can select from up to 50 industry tags (food, finance, lifestyle, tech, etc etc) and can localise by State and Territories. If there’s a match on industry tags then you see the pitch. Using swiping technology you can scroll through stories, swipe left if you don’t like the story or right if you do. If you swipe right, it will open an immediate and private chat between you and the person who posted the pitch. The best bit…. The pitches have limitations – so brands can only upload selected images, a headline and up to 500 characters to bring their pitch to life. They then select which industry tag their story is relevant to, and localise it. So now you don’t need to read any more press releases or receive any more pitches that you’re not interested in. Story Match® was developed to improve efficiencies in the media industry, and allow all brands, no matter how big or small the opportunity to get their brand noticed. The tech platform has been developed by Founder and Director of Polkadot Communications Dionne Taylor – who has worked both as a journalist and a PR for the last 15 years. Dionne is available for an interview to chat about this new and exciting platform, built just for YOU! If interested in speaking with Dionne, please get in touch.
