Temptation is too strong

WITH the festive season placing many in indulgence mode, the popular worldwide chocolate bar chain Max Brenner has had a jolly first Christmas in Coolangatta.

After settling into its new home in The Strand Shopping Centre in November, area manager Tracey Westcott said the chocolate bar had been drawing in the customers.

"It's been really good," Ms Westcott said.

"We've had a really warm welcome in Coolangatta."

Ms Westcott said the festive season had been a great one for the new chocolate bar.

"We've had a lot of first-time customers there," she said. Ms Westcott said for Max Brenner, chocolate was more than a treat, but an entire experience.

She said the 28 staff at the Coolangatta cafe were a mixture of various demographics, from school-age to mature workers.

"We have a really diverse mixture of team members in all our chocolate bars," she said.

"They're all loving it."

She said the business had received plenty of positive feedback since opening their Coolangatta branch.

"It's all been really positive," she said.

"We're getting a lot of people that have never been to a Max Brenner before come in and love it."

Ms Westcott said the chocolate bar offered a chocolate experience that was outside the everyday.

"It's also about being able to revive your inner child," she said."

If a divine chocolate indulgence isn't enough, the views over Coolangatta beach should be.

"It's a beautiful location," she said.

"I don't know if there are any other Max Brenner's with absolute beachfront views."

While some might be on a post-Christmas diet, Ms Westcott said no one had ever left Max Brenner with a guilty look on their face.

"Everyone leaves with a massive smile, and that's priceless," she said.
