November 2014 – Hog’s Breath Cafe Narellan

Hog’s Breath Cafe, Narellan is MWLP’s Business of the Month for November.

They are the home of Hog’spitality! Specialising in 18 hour slow cooked Prime Rib Steaks.  From day one, Hog’s Breath Cafe set out to be unlike any other restaurant. In a nutshell, they are about providing quality food and beverage in a casual environment with an over-riding friendly, party atmosphere.

Not only are their Prime Rib Steaks a winner, they are winners in just how much they give back to the Macarthur community – offering one student every week the opportunity to experience what life is all about in the Hog’s Breath Kitchen.  These Year 11 and 12 students are studying Hospitality as part of their HSC.

Students learn about split shifts, kitchen hygiene, cleaning, food prep, cooking, working in a team and how the kitchen interacts with the front of house ie the wait staff.  They even get to prepare and cook a meal for themselves.

Bob Hayden, Franchisee/Manager, is keen to let the students make up their own minds about careers in Hospitality after spending a busy week in his Hog’s Breath Franchise in Narellan.

Bob says “It’s good to give back and help kids know if they are suited to the industry – otherwise it can be a waste of time for everyone.  A lot of the students have no idea of just what is involved.  The program is also a great way to intervi ew.  One of our chefs, Ben Schollenberger, (pictured above) came through the MWLP-Linking Youth program from Picton High School and he’s great.  We have also hired a lot of casuals.”

As this month’s outstanding winner, Hog’s Breath Cafe, Narellan will receive profiling in the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly editions of the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
