Tweed Daily News - - NEWS| BUSINESS - Ais­ling Bren­nan ais­ling.bren­nan@tweed­dai­lynews.com.au

FOR any adult with a sweet tooth, Donut King Tweed City is bring­ing back the nos­tal­gic taste of old-school donuts with its new Up­grown Up range.

Each bite for the 12 new donuts flavours will in­stantly bring any­one back to their favourite child­hood mem­o­ries.

We chat with Donut King Tweed City fran­chise part­ner Barry Hard­cas­tle about the new donut and his store:

What do you most en­joy about op­er­at­ing your own

busi­ness? We have owned and op­er­ated our Tweed City store for over 15 years now and couldn’t be hap­pier.

Def­i­nitely the au­ton­omy that comes with run­ning your own busi­ness how you want to, and hav­ing the back up from a well-known and es­tab­lished fran­chise net­work which of­fers re­as­sur­ance, es­pe­cially if you haven’t been in busi­ness be­fore. We have a feel­ing that cus­tomers of all ages will love the new range and all the youth­ful flavours from their past, and en­cour­age all Tweed Heads lo­cals to drop in and try one.

What’s the big­gest chal­lenge in op­er­at­ing a busi­ness in Tweed?

It would have to be the chal­lenge of other com­peti­tors in the shop­ping cen­tre we op­er­ate in.

If you are not on your game, it is easy to lose cus­tomers as they will go else­where. I strongly be­lieve we over­come this through our high stan­dards of cus­tomer ser­vice and qual­ity cof­fee and donuts. What’s the big­gest

ad­van­tage in op­er­at­ing a busi­ness in Tweed?

The big­gest ad­van­tage for me is that I get to live in this beau­ti­ful place and it’s nice and close to work.

It’s a great area to be in and work in, and we have lots of won­der­ful, loyal cus­tomers that visit us daily.
