Sunrise host and family business owner David Koch was on the hunt to find Australia’s Favourite Family Business, and we were excited and honoured that Crema Joe was named a contender!
Small businesses are the lifeblood of Australia’s economy, and approximately 70 per cent of those – or 1.5 million – are family-run. From breweries to boutiques, corner stores to caterers, Australia’s family businesses not only employ millions of workers and keep the economy ticking, but also clothe us, feed us, care for us, and even entertain us.
As a long-time small business owner, David's mission for Kochie’s Business Builders is to support small business owners with simple insights, education, and inspiration to motivate them on their journey. Through the search to find Australia’s Favourite Family Business, Kochie celebrates Australia’s amazing, often unsung, family businesses, shines a spotlight on their efforts and thanks them for all the hard yards they put in to help our communities prosper.
Peter Strong CEO of the Council of Small Business Owners Australia (COSBOA) said it is vital to acknowledge the contribution of Australia’s many family businesses.“Family businesses are quite often dynasties that add to the economy, keep people in work, provide the opportunity to better manage change and create innovation. We need to support them and understand just how unique they are,” says Strong.
We were absolutely stoked to hang out with the group of amazing finalists at the Australia’s Favourite Family Business finalist awards night. Thank you to everyone who voted for us, we’re so blessed to be surrounded by such a supportive community - we honestly wouldn’t be where we are without you!
And of course a BIG congratulations to 8 Kangaroos on their win!
