Myrtleford Times - - News -

What is your busi­ness?

Jessie James take­away food, fish and chips.

What brought you to this role?

My hus­band Dale and l wanted to work for our­selves and wanted to stay in the area long term, so we took the op­por­tu­nity when we saw the busi­ness for sale. We both look for­ward to meet­ing all the lo­cals and mak­ing friends.

Is it some­thing you have al­ways wanted to do?

Yes. It’s some­thing we have thought about for a few years now. We ac­tu­ally missed out on buy­ing Jessie James about seven years ago so when we saw it up for sale again we thought we would try again.

What have you en­joyed most about it?

We en­joy pro­vid­ing great cus­tomer ser­vice and qual­ity food, see­ing a smile on our cus­tomers’ faces know­ing they have en­joyed the food. We look for­ward to meet­ing more lo­cals and cre­at­ing friend­ships within the com­mu­nity.

How long have you been in the area?

We have been in and out of Myrtle­ford for about 15 years now as Dale has worked in con­struc­tion, so we have moved around Aus­tralia a bit for his work. We ar­rived back here at the start of this year from Bris­bane af­ter orig­i­nally being from the La­trobe Val­ley in Gipp­s­land.

What do you en­joy/love about liv­ing here?

We both love the sur­round­ings in the area, the bush, moun­tains, rivers, friendly lo­cals and com­mu­nity sup­port. We love the High Coun­try and all it has to of­fer.

What is an is­sue that Myrtle­ford faces?

Not enough em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cals within the com­mu­nity.

If you could get any­one in the world to visit Myrtle­ford who would it be and what would you show them?

There is not one par­tic­u­lar per­son l could think of, how­ever l would rec­om­mend that ev­ery­one visit Myrtle­ford to check out our beau­ti­ful coun­try and see what awe­some lo­cal pro­duce our com­mu­nity has to of­fer.

What would be your Jessie James or­der?

Ham­burger Deal. Ham­burger with the lot, chips and a can of drink for only $12. Or even a freshly bat­tered sav for $1.50.
