SALSAS FRESH MEX
Every business has to grow and we knew in the Australian market that we needed more than one brand.
We looked for a business and category that was growing and fit with our values and quality. Salsas
Fresh Mex was a perfect fit. At Salsas, you may get your food quickly, but we take a lot of time behind
the scenes to prepare your food.
The team starts early every morning – chopping fresh vegetables and coriander, cooking rice & corn chips to perfection, mashing ripe avocados and taste testing the fresh guac. We're all about creating wholesome, fresh food; – without taking any short cuts. For that reason, your meal is only made when you order it; – even our irresistible Mexicrinkles. Our signature mouth-watering recipes delight the senses and are full of authentic Mexican flavours that will keep you coming back for more. For more information visit www.salsas.com.au. Salsas is high quality, great tasting Mexican food. In 2007 we purchased the business, which at the time had 9 stores. We now have over 50 stores in Australia.
Inspired by the much loved neighbourhood chicken shop, Hatch takes chicken shop classics, such as
spit roasted free range chicken, fresh gourmet salads and combines these with an impressive range of
chicken burgers, wraps and dishes. At Hatch we see chicken differently and want to share the love for
the humble bird with everyone. Modelled on an old barn with a relaxed and cool vibe, Hatch dishes up a
surprising dining experience.
CIBO Espresso began in 2000 but the desire to provide a ‘simply Italian' experience for customers was
born years earlier when the four founding partners, Roberto Cardone, Salvatore Pepe, Angelo Inglese
and Claudio Ferraro first combined their skills to open CIBO Ristorante in Adelaide in 1996.
The restaurant quickly became a dining landmark in Adelaide, renowned for its high quality, traditional Italian menu, including cakes, pastries, gelato, pizza, wood oven bread made on the premises and outstanding coffee. Espresso Bar culture was still in its infancy in Australia, but convinced that people were ready for a real Italian coffee bar, they opened their first CIBO Espresso in Rundle Street, in the heart of Adelaide. Here they offered artisan made, Italian products in a modern bar environment – an echo of the many coffee bars which line the winding streets and piazzas of Rome. Coffee lovers were quick to catch on to the premium Arabica CIBO Espresso blend that poured from the espresso machine day and night. Before long, more CIBO Espresso bars had opened in key locations all over the city and a pasticceria was working through the night to supply the panini, sfogliatelle, cannoli and other treats fresh each morning. Since our humble beginnings, CIBO Espresso has expanded to 27 outlets with 23 in Adelaide, two in Western Australia, one in Victoria and one in Brisbane. Everything is made exclusively for our CIBO Espresso bars and has been made in our CIBO Espresso kitchen where we make all our pastry, bread, food, gelati and coffee. Our kitchen, led by Salvatore and Claudio, is dedicated to continually innovating and developing products in preparation for CIBO Espresso's summer and winter menu.

In March 2007, Boost gave away our fabulous Little Collins St store! With the help of Fox FM, we
selected 140 finalists from thousands of entries submitted to attend Boost Camp. Over the course of 2
days the teams were put through their paces to whittle the entrants down to the best of the best! Those
remaining towards the end of the competition had to impress in a final interview with Janine. At the
end of the third day, 3 finalists were given a key, and Natalie Brown opened the door to the store…and a

Celebrity Smoothies are something that is as the title suggest,

For the first 2 weeks of June 2014 we blended up a brand new drink
named PRO-CHOC Smoothie across Australia! The PRO-CHOC Smoothie
is a balanced, high-protein meal in a cup. The protein combined with
antioxidants and healthy fats promised to fuel customers through the
heaviest workout and delivered! It was also a great breakfast option for
people on the go. In this smoothie was everyone's favourite flavour…
chocolate! A chocolate with benefits is always a win. Cacao is rich
in magnesium and antioxidants that assist with muscle repair and
recovery. It also provides sustained energy to support the endocrine
and immune systems.
During August 2014 the first smoothie in our Premier Range was
launched. The Protein Supreme was promoted for a period of 3 weeks
as a premium smoothie that was designed to be an abundance of
nutrition and contained a delicious blend of our healthiest ingredients.
We loaded this smoothie up with even more protein (32g)! That's not all,
the drink was very well balanced, blending carbohydrates, healthy fats,
fibre and micronutrients on top of the protein to make a delicious sweet
and satisfying smoothie. This drink is nothing short of a very healthy
feast with the best ingredients; so was therefore justifiably being sold
for $9 for the Original size and $8.50 for a Medium.
MINOR CAMPAIGNS ARE USUALLY INITIATED THROUGH BTL TECHNIQUES.
We have our fantastic vibe newsletter that we have competitions in each month, which also gives us
a database to share offers such as ‘buy one get one for $1'. We also have the new Boost app which
includes a mates rates section for us to include coupons for customers to redeem instantly. But every
touch point that we have with our valued customers is considered marketing, so always remember that
customer service is just as important in marketing as any offer or promotion.

challenge as no two stores are the same. We endeavour to make each design unique in appearance, yet the systems and flow within the store are carried through every single fit-out. Despite the difference physically, the Boost brand stands out above all making each store instantly recognisable to our customers.
Our incredible team members are passionate about giving our customers a great shopping experience and along with the row of busy blenders at the front of the shop, they are the focal point of a vibrant, theatrical celebration - the making and mixing of a great smoothie! So not only is Boost providing customers with an amazing product through the design, shop fit and the fantastic staff - Boost is creating an experience!
