Young Entrepreneur Award - September 2019 Quarter

HUGE congratulations to Shelby Anderson, Head Chef at The Packing Shed at Lawnbrook, for winning the Young Entrepreneur of the Quarter award (June - Sept 2019).

Shelby is just 22 years old and has been employed at the Packing Shed for only 12 months. However, in that time, she has made the role her own. She consistently works hard to produce high quality food that puts The Packing Shed on the map, and has strived to put the success of the business first and foremost.

Shelby is never one to say no to a challenge and owners Rebekah and Bruce credit Shelby's efforts in the kitchen as instrumental to the steady growth of the Packing Shed over the last year.

Shelby completed her apprenticeship elsewhere in Kalamunda before making the move to the Packing Shed, where she has creative licence to design the menu. She focuses on using local produce where possible - the fruit and vegetables come from "down the road" whilst the bread comes from the bakery in Kalamunda.

Shelby loves her job and hopes to stay at The Packing Shed "as long as they are open". She is a strong asset and strives to help grow and expand the business. For Shelby, the main difference is "really looking forward to going to work everyday instead of dreading it!" - something everyone hopes for!

If you haven't visited The Packing Shed at Lawnbrook yet, why not pop in and meet Shelby, Rebekah, Bruce and the rest of the team. In Shelby's words, "it is a beautiful family orientated place with a relaxed and friendly environment, great views over the Bickley Valley, delicious wine, and a large lawn for the kids to play on...….oh, and the food isn't bad either!".
