United Synergies’ social enterprise café, Coffee United, is expanding to the Cooroy Library Café in July 2015. Noosa Council awarded a tender for the service to United Synergies, based on a proposal for a café with additional social benefits.
Local young people will be recruited to staff the café, and will be provided with valuable on-the-job training to develop skills in hospitality and barista service.
The Cooroy Library Café will become the second site for the Coffee United social enterprise. The first site is located at the back of headspace Maroochydore in Evans Street, and has been supporting local young people with barriers to employment for the last two years.
