My what a lovely year. Colenso has just turned 7. This year we won the Macedon Ranges Business Excellence Awards for ‘Food and Beverage’. We also won Runner Up – ‘Business of the Year’. I know the restaurant continues to grow and all of us at Colenso really work on making continued improvements on a number of levels.
– We have made a point of buying more of our produce within Woodend this year.
– We have also added specialised and beautiful wine service fixtures.
– Our staff coffee training and maintenance of standards goes from strength to strength.
By the end of 2017 Colenso will re-locate. So yes, we are currently involved with transitioning the business. We will keep you posted. Our wonderful staff are kept up to date with our plans, but they won’t share them with you. They are kept wonderfully busy doing all the things that keep you well looked after while you are a customer at Colenso.
Our landlords decided to not re-new our lease nor to offer lease terms to another operator if we had wished to sell our business. That is their right and their decision. We have known of this for years.
Please trust that we have no plans for a business closure. We wish to re-locate and feel confidant that Woodend is the home of Colenso. Please be positive. And to be super supportive just come along as often as you like and share Colenso with as many people as you can.
Oh and don’t forget we are open New Years Eve. Our last in the current location.
