Coffee is the key to any good breakfast and for Matt Lucas it is the key to a good business too. Matt is the owner of The Coffee Pedaler,  a café that started in Tumut and has grown to also  include a site in Gundagai. Matt has been self employed for over 20 years  with experiences in banking, printing, fitness and now hospitality.  Matt knows the challenges of life as small business owner in a rural town, from staffing to marketing and everything in between. Like many small business owners, COVID has presented a whole new raft of challenges. Hear how Matt has used his business skills and experience to face those challenges and grow his business even during COVID. Best of all – Matt will take attendees through a coffee tasting  experience with breakfast.
