Ray of sunshine for workers
Rain, hail or flood the Moore family rises each day at the crack of dawn to feed the hungry troops
HESTER Moore enjoys greeting her early-morning customers by name.
Great hot food and a friendly smile can be found at The Shed from 4.30am.
Hester starts work at 3am and opens at 4.30am every morning, seven days a week.
She is in tune with her early-starter workers who call in most mornings for breakfast.
Hester and husband David moved to Mundubbera from the Dalby area in 2005 and bought The Shed Takeaway in 2006.
“Being a stay-at-home mum before we bought the shop, I saw it as a way for me to get back into the workforce,” Hester said.
“With help from my husband, David, and daughter Amelinda, who is 13, we work hard as a family.”
The family’s shop and house was wiped out by the 2012 floods.
“With no insurance cover for flood at the shop or home and after a very short time of reflection we decided that nothing was going to beat us,” Hester said.

“So we busted our butts and we were back in business in 10 days.
“We have been working on The Shed Takeaway, expanding the dine-in area of the business, which is now up and running.
“We have a large area with plenty of seating and a new menu.
“The best service I can provide will always be at The Shed.”
