Raising the bar in dining

THE Sandbar and Grill is upgrading its payroll along with its colour scheme.

Earlier this month, the Tweed Coast hot spot announced it will embark on a major employment drive to attract more professional and experienced staff to the area.

Domain Casuarina Beach Resort chief executive Cameron Arnold said “the Sandbar and Grill is currently looking to recruit a number of wait staff, bar staff, baristas and kitchen staff to keep up with demand.”

According to Mr Arnold, “we’re taking ‘coastal dining’ and ‘beach bars’ to a new level.”

“The experience is not only open to patrons, but to professional staff who want to grow with our team over the coming years.”

The call for new staff comes after a $250,000 renovation of the facility started earlier this month.

“Over the past year, Casuarina Beach has enjoyed a remarkable improvement to its million-dollar Rec Club facility and High Performance Centre,” Mr Arnold said.

“And the Sandbar and Grill renovation is the third stage in an overall ‘rejuvenated look’ for the central precinct.”

According to the renovation designer, Ingrid Strasser, “it’s important that the Sandbar and Grill appeals to a mix of age-groups with an emphasis on families, particularly through the courtyard and grassed play area.”

The refurbishment is part of a general upgrade of the facilities in the central precinct of Casuarina Beach, and will provide for the growing number of residents and visitors to the region.

“Casuarina Village will create a vibrant, commercial heart for the region and it’s important that the existing facilities complement that infrastructure and can also cater for the influx of new consumers over coming years,” Mr Arnold said.
