Tony Rocca, owner of Rundle St-based Italian cafe Brunelli, opens his third branch as part of the West Lakes Shopping Centre expansion, employing about 30 fulltime and part-time workers, including chefs, pizza makers, baristas and waiters.
He says the West Lakes cafe is an investment because it is ‘‘ an area of huge growth’’.
‘‘ We have a cafe in the city and one in the eastern suburbs, so we thought the western suburbs was the next move,’’ Rocca says.
Emily McPhee, 21, of Largs North, is one of those to get a job in the new cafe.
‘‘ I’m excited to be working so close to home,’’ she says. across
