Cater­ing for a ready-made mar­ket

The Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

TWO Bridges Espresso is brew­ing up a storm and pro­vid­ing what the road­work­ers and lo­cals need, in the ideal lo­ca­tion next to the old and new Har­wood bridge.

Owner Ed Goode said it started when he got in con­tact with an old cus­tomer and told him he wanted to set up a cof­fee van on his prop­erty.

“He was fa­mil­iar with my cof­fee and I said to him, right be­fore I built the van, I wanted to set up here,” he said.

The land­lord agreed and 12 months later Mr Goode came back with a cof­fee van at the ready. When he opened in Fe­bru­ary last year only a cou­ple of pil­lars of the new bridge were up and now it’s near com­ple­tion.

Mr Goode is on lo­ca­tion Mon­day to Fri­day 5am to 1pm but does 50 per cent of his busi­ness be­fore 7am.

“There’s new con­trac­tors mov­ing to the site next to me here in a cou­ple weeks so that will be good. It’ll start to be busy again,” he said.

He said a large cap­puc­cino with two sug­ars would be the road­work­ers go-to cof­fee.

“If I for­get any­one’s or­der I can start off say­ing large cap with two and 80 per cent of the time I would be right,” he said.

He doesn’t plan to fol­low the high­way work­ers as he lives in Maclean but may move into town or some­where close by.
