Life & Style Weekend - - Q & A - BRETT FAWCETT busi­ness owner and di­rec­tor

Brett Fawcett is the co-owner and di­rec­tor of Riba Kai Maroochydo­re. He has made his mark on the re­gion as a long-term busi­ness owner and his pas­sion for hos­pi­tal­ity is tes­ta­ment to his success.

Riba Kai, which was ini­tially lo­cated in­side Sun­shine Plaza, has a strong rep­u­ta­tion among lo­cals for its great ser­vice, de­li­cious food and pump­ing at­mos­phere.

Now lo­cated at The Con­cept com­plex in Maroochydo­re, Brett and busi­ness part­ner Kylie Pizzi­rani have taken the much-loved res­tau­rant to a whole new level.

As ded­i­cated and hard-work­ing own­ers, you can catch Brett or Kylie at the venue just about any day of the week.

1 Favourite time of day and why? About 9pm when my work is done and it’s time to en­joy a glass of red wine to wind down from the day.

2 What ex­cites you?

Find­ing a new res­tau­rant that blows my mind in terms of ser­vice, food and at­mos­phere.

3 Favourite sport? Player or spectator? I love watch­ing For­mula One rac­ing.

But I wouldn’t turn down an of­fer to drive one of those cars my­self !

4 Best child­hood mem­ory?

An­nual Gold Coast hol­i­days with the fam­ily and hanging out on the beach with my broth­ers.

5 Where were you born? Townsville.

6 Where would you like to hol­i­day? Spain and Italy, and I’m really ex­cited to be going there later this year.

7 Cats or dogs? Do you have a pet?

I’m torn! I love both, but I do have a two-year-old Golden Cocker Spaniel named Hud­son.

8 Who are your heroes?

My par­ents – their courage and de­ter­mi­na­tion in life and busi­ness, and abil­ity to have fun along the way.

9 Dream job?

I al­ready love what I do but if I was ever given the op­por­tu­nity, I wouldn’t say no to fly­ing a plane.

10 What will you be do­ing in 10 years? Hope­fully re­lax­ing a lit­tle and see­ing more of the world.

11 What’s the best thing about liv­ing on the Sun­shine Coast?

Our re­laxed life­style and hav­ing my girl­friend, fam­ily and friends all close by.
