Small-business owner shares sweet success story
SHE is the face behind the world-famous 1kg doughnut and Australia's first 'coffee in a doughnut'.
Now the founder and face of Kenilworth Country Bakery, Jenna Sanders, will be a guest speaker at a networking event at the Murgon town hall on Wednesday from 5.30pm.
BIEDO CEO Kristy Frahm said the meet and greet event was being held to celebrate Queensland Small Business Week.
"We look forward to hearing the Kenilworth Country Bakery story and Jenna's insights into what it takes for a business to taste sweet success in small rural communities," Ms Frahm said.
Ms Sanders will share how she leads her bakery team to craft world-famous creations.
The networking event will be run by BIEDO, North Burnett Regional Council, Business South Burnett, Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, Gympie Regional Council and the Bundaberg Business Enterprise Centre.
BIEDO's Ms Frahm said the free community event would also host a number of small-business owners from within the Wide Bay Burnett on a panel to gain perspectives from a range of business communities and sectors.
"We look forward to celebrating Queensland Small Business Week with our business community as they play such an important role in the economic and social fabric of our region," she said.
"We appreciate the commitment and hard work it takes to run a small business year round and want to acknowledge that with an event during this significant week."
The free event will give businesses from the Burnett inland a chance to promote themselves and connect with others.
Businesses and organisations are encouraged to have a free trade stand at the meet and greet event, or to bring along some brochures or business cards to let everyone know about their products and services.
