Commuters can now enjoy a morning cuppa at a new coffee kiosk at u014ctu0101huhu Station thanks to a social enterprise designed to benefit the community.
Mu0101ngere-Otahuhu Local Board members were among those at this morning’s launch of the Fale Kofi coffee kiosk.
The kiosk is run by Affirming Works, which has extensive experience ru
ing community cafes and is supported by a cooperative of The Southern Initiative (TSI), oneCOOPERATIVE and Roots Creative Entrepreneurs. The cooperative business model will add more social, local, Mu0101ori and Pasifika enterprises over time.
Local Board Chair Lemauga Lydia Sosene says it was great to see a local enterprise given the chance to show what it can do and for locals to benefit from the significant infrastructure investment going on in the area.
u201cOften small enterprises find it hard to compete against bigger businesses for a site like this, and what this will do is help Affirming Works build their capabilities and continue to employ local young people, so they are on a much more even playing field in the future.u201d
The Southern Initiative worked with Auckland Transport to create the opportunity for the exciting food and beverage social enterprise called Fale Kofi on a six month trial and potentially a prototype for what could be done in others places.
Nutritious and affordable”
