Restaurant and catering in Australia to benefit from NBN: Lundy

Government grants Restaurant and Catering Australia $500,000 to develop digital business kit

Restaurant and cafe operators will soon have access to tailored advice on how to improve and build their businesses by using the NBN.

Minister assisting for the digital economy, Senator Kate Lundy, announced that Restaurant and Catering Australia will receive a grant of $500,000 to develop a digital business kit that helps small to medium sized operators get online and use the NBN to drive productivity.

Restaurant & Catering Australia will distribute the kit to raise awareness, conducting workshops in capital cities and an ongoing social media campaign. The kit will be regularly updated to incorporate new ways of making use of the NBN as these emerge in the sector.

The Rudd Labor Government is providing a total of $5 million to develop digital business kits for 10 industry sectors.

“Australians go online to see what restaurants and cafes have to offer before choosing where to dine and this business kit will support these establishments with tailored advice from Restaurant & Catering Australia,” she said, during a visit to the Garfish Restaurant in Manly.

According to Lundy, the digital business kit for restaurants and cafes will promote specific NBN-enabled capabilities, including online ordering, payment and booking systems, remote inventory monitoring, and even offering customers a video view of the restaurant before they make a booking.

“For Australian businesses to take full advantage of the NBN, they need targeted information – and an understanding of how leading small and medium enterprises in their industry sector are using the internet and online tools.

“The Rudd Labor Government believes the NBN can deliver greater workforce productivity, better access for consumers, and increased access to new markets – and we look forward to working with the sector to achieve this,” she said.

Restaurant & Catering Australia CEO, John Hart, said he is excited about the benefits the NBN will bring because it will profoundly change the way restaurants and cafes do business.

“We believe the NBN can deliver greater workforce productivity, better access for consumers, and increased access to new markets – and we look forward to working with the sector to achieve this,” he claimed.
