A new Cloncurry business is extending its hours before it has even opened, due to popular demand.
Kathie Mulholland's business, Come to the Table, has already generated significant interest in its woodfire pizzas and outback meals that they have extended opening hours before completing the outfit of the premises.
"I was just going to do pizzas from 5pm to 8pm but everyone has been telling us they want them throughout the day as well. Therefore I have had to extend my hours due to the demand we are already receiving," Ms Mulholland said.
"Not only will we be doing woodfire pizzas but also delivering good, hardy, Aussie meals."
Ms Mulholland had worked as a registered nurse in emergency for 17 years but wanted a change.
"I had spoken to staff at the Cloncurry Hospital and they kept saying they wanted good food, so I started looking into it," she said.
"I realised that a nice, sit down cafe was needed and we found our location at 33 Ramsay Street.
"It was previously a pizza shop and is the perfect size for what we needed. It also has an arcade which we will use as a garden seating area."
Ms Mulholland said they would continue to outfit the building but expected to be open and operating by mid-October.
"Our amazing Italian woodfire pizza oven is installed and renovations are complete, we just need to finish outfitting it with appliances and furniture," she said.
"We are very excited to have an all Australian sourced menu, garlic from Byron Bay, bacon from Toowoomba and Aussie beef. The menu really speaks for itself with names like chainsaw, outback man eater, drop bear, frying dory and similar Aussie names.
"The response from the community has been really good. Everyone is very excited and poking their head in the shop and asking if we are open yet.
"We are excited and hope to be open soon."
