Own­ers mov­ing on

Katikati Advertiser - - On The Job -

Af­ter seven years of fun, it’s time for change, say Am­bria Restau­rant own­ers Andrew and Caz Hughes, who bid the busi­ness farewell on Tues­day.

The cou­ple had a farewell party in the restau­rant on Sun­day with staff, friends and some mem­bers of the Katikati Foot­ball

Club, which they have spon­sored for the past seven years.

They say there have been many high­lights at Am­bria with wed­dings, mile­stone birthdays and Mel­bourne Cup Days. “We’ve had some lovely peo­ple in.”

Hir­ing Ver­non Jensen as head chef was an­other, where he ended up mar­ry­ing their daugh­ter Shelle. Ver­non also notched up ac­co­lades in the Beef and Lamb awards and Chef of the Year.

Andrew and Caz wish the new lo­cal own­ers all the best and wish to say a “big thank you” to the town for its pa­tron­age.

The Hughes plan to have a hol­i­day and catch up on work at home be­fore tack­ling their next project.

Andrew and Caz Hughes closed the door on Am­bria Restau­rant for the last time on Tues­day.
