Local operators from Te Kuiti enjoyed a great training session last week at The Chip Group’s Te Kuiti Town Makeover, hosted by local health worker Anne Lennex and presented by Kate Underwood, Training and Education Manager at the Maniapoto House, in Te Kuiti.
Bright and early on a Monday morning, operators from Golden Lantern Takeaways and Hong Kong Takeaways learnt the tricks and techniques about cooking chips to Industry Standards. Covering topics such as oil temperature, serving or portion size, chip size, salt and drainage they left feeling like experts in their field!
Champion Chippie – Michael Huang was also in attendance, and his bi-lingual abilities meant he was able to help one of the asian operators work through the training. He was also able to share advice on building business, and making changes for the better or the customer. A big thanks to Michael for making the effort to attend.
Many other local operators in Te Kuiti have completed our online training or had at least one of their staff complete it. Everything we do at the training seminar is the same as the online videos – but it is the conversation and interaction with other businesses and in particular – Michael that most operators find invaluable.
We will be following up with Te Kuiti operators to see how they are doing after working through our training. So keep an eye out for these.
