There is also a concern about getting the company branded supplies through as quickly as a CBD Brisbane store could. Hurley’s cafe was a family run store and some family members were employed on the staff. James was engaged by the family to supervise the operations of the store and Mr. Hurley as manager would authorise wages but anyone can authorise deliveries. When asked about written policy and procedures manual, James said that Mr. Hurley set the policy and procedures verbally and on the few days each week he was in the store he would show the staff how to do things the way he wanted them done. Water use Running the dishwasher when only half full. Washing fruit and vegetables under a fast running tap. Toilets all used the single flush system. Dual flush would cost about $7,500 to upgrade. The dishwasher was always set to full wash and had a Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Scheme (WELS) rating of 3. The more water efficient 5-6 star dishwashers cost about $6,000 and above. James explained that Mr Hurley instructed the staff to keep the non-native flowering plants in the courtyard fully watered. The store currently uses 41,500lt a week. James spoke about the cafe attracting a large % of retirees because of the easy access to busses and the stores central location. The same staff member that completed the cash register balancing also completed the bank deposit form and did the banking as well. The banking was not done every day and often $4,000 was kept on the premises overnight in the cash register. There was no safe. There is a bank two shops away but the Hurley family bank is a couple of blocks away and there was not always time to do the banking. James replied to you question about the possibility of break-ins saying that there was a 50% chance of it happening and the risk was moderate. Not all takings from the cash register by family staff members were recorded. The fit-out in parts looked old and unattractive, with some chairs unstable and broken and some parts of the worn carpet was simply taped over with gaffer tape. One of the staff was a qualified chef who had developed an innovative and popular range of rice wraps that were tasty, gourmet and healthy. None of the other cafes in the area offered these. No established process for dealing with injuries that happened at work. James gave a brochure about an innovative frozen par-bake cooking system that was under the limit set by council for an exhaust system yet it cooked fresh bakery items in 30 minutes from frozen par-baked pastries.
