Phil White from Sunshine Antenna Service knows all about the high and lows of owning and running a business on the Sunshine Coast, having been successfully in business here since 1994!
Phil says “ The ups and downs keep it interesting but since the GFC it has been just that little more challenging”
As Education Officer and Mentor for his local Business group he is always promoting the positives and encouraging business owners to lead by example.
So when the opportunity came to own his own premises instead of leasing he decided he better put his money where his mouth is and invest in the commercial premises right here on the coast!
Having purchased the bare semi-industrial shed at 25 Fishermans Rd Maroochydore, just before Xmas, Phil and his team of local contractors have been busy fitting out the new shop ready for the March Opening!
“You would not recognise it from just a few months ago” he says, “with a mezzanine and a home cinema display upstairs, a large new modern office downstairs and a new work bay for installing satellite systems on caravans up to 8m long”.
The Grand Opening day is Saturday 15th of March 2014, from 10am to 3pm with the official ribbon cutting opening ceremony at 10.30am.
With a lot of emphasis on the new Caravan satellite systems, Phil has combined with a number of local businesses to create a carpark display so there will be Camper trailers and Caravans along with Camping displays and a sausage sizzle to raise funds for a local soccer club.
Upstairs there will be a full home Cinema on display with projector and theatre chairs and iPad smart controls and lighting and impressive sound system to show people.
“The idea is to show people some of the ideas for their home cinemas and media rooms”
“We have invited all our customers ( over 6700 of them!) so we are confident of a good turn out on the day!
Phil says “ We are only a modest sized business but I believe that these milestones should be celebrated and I am keen to get the message out there that the Sunshine Coast small business community is alive and well. Things really are looking up and we just need to keep investing in our local area and running good businesses and things will keep get even better!”
“We have also invited our local Members and Councillors and the Mayor for the opening ceremony and hope they will be available to join in with the celebrations on the day!”
“ It’s going to be a great day with lots to see so come on down!” says Phil
