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.”
