Well the October rush seems to have calmed down a litle and all the girls are back in the office! Normal service has hopefully been resumed!
Last week we had no fewer than ten baristas out representing Cafe Azzurro and our clients at events all over Europe, from Switzerland, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Madrid and London. All received fantastic feedback and all enjoyed themselves despite the hard graft they are expected to put in.
We have also had our best month ever on equipment sales and at the time of writing it is looking like we may beat our July ingredients sales results which would mean that would be our best month as well!
We must be doing something right!
By the end of October and early November our customers will be putting the final touches to their Christmas preparations and we too are looking to pre-plan to ensure that our service levels do not fall when we reach our busiest time of the year. It really is frantic in December, and we need to be on top of our game. Our team are motivated by our Christmas incentive and our annual Christmas bash which this year will take place on 23rd December.
