In October 2016, the doors to the reinvigorated Chadstone Shopping Centre were swung wide open. Future Food had the pleasure of working alongside this project, assisting in creating an innovative and strategic food mix across both new dining precincts, including 24 outlets in Food Central and seven full-service style restaurants in The Dining Terrace, one of which was Marae Izakaya. Last Thursday marked the one year anniversary since the opening of Marae Izakaya. The team enjoyed a night filled with music, Japanese tradition, culture, delicious food and vintage sake cracking barrel services.
In November 2016, Future Food was engaged by the South Melbourne Market to form part of the selection committee to choose a potential chocolate specialist operator capable of delivering a modern chocolate patisserie at the Market.
