Chit Chat Coffee Cart
What’s the social or environmental cause your enterprise addresses?
Social isolation and multicultural skills training.
Describe your trading activity (what do you sell and who are your customers?)
Mobile coffee cart located in the Moe Library selling teas and coffees made by volunteers.
How are you going with the work?
We are a fledgling social enterprise slowly expanding our customer base and building a group of regular coffee drinkers. We hope to introduce a range of biscuits, cakes, slices and preserves made by our volunteers. Each week we are building our customer numbers and the confidence of the volunteers is growing along with it.
What is the biggest challenge?
Keeping a steady flow of volunteers. We offer free training in safe food handling and coffee making and once the volunteers get really good at what they do, they head off and get a job! (The ideal outcome really but it makes it difficult to maintain the work roster).
What is your hope for the future?
Our future hope is to employ a regular barista and continue to train volunteers. We are hoping to host volunteer-run, multicultural cooking classes so that they volunteers can earn a small income.
