Eatery team pulling off speedy makeover with more to come
IN just a couple of weeks, Warwick's Gardens Galore has pulled off some impressive renovations and the team aren't done yet.
A wooden roof frame has been installed in the cafe underneath the existing high metal ceiling, with beams that will soon hold a sea of greenery.
The front counter has also been replaced, with mint green walls and a sturdy wooden top replacing the previously tiled counter.
A dedicated ice cream counter will also be created.
Owner Sue Hoffman said a split system would be installed, which would allow for heating and cooling.
"It's trendy, it's modern, it's in sync with what's happening," she said.
Mrs Hoffman as spent the past 14 years building the business from scratch, saying she wanted to start the year off with something new.
"We decided we'd take it to another level again and go into the future," she said.
"We want to make it a better place for people to come so it's a destination."
Work on the space began after Christmas and most of the renovations have been completed at night, so the business can continue to run as normal seven days a week.
Positive feedback has already been flowing thick and fast about the changes.
Mrs Hoffman said visitors from interstate have even been asking for the team to start up a similar venture in their own cities.
"It goes all the way back to the plants and they're getting the service and advice," she said.
Mrs Hoffman said the work was just phase one of the project, with more surprises to come.
"We want to keep pushing ourselves up the ladder to step up and step up," she said.
"We've got lovely young staff and they want to go on as well, it's all about teamwork."
