Andy Freeman of Sneakers & Jeans, John Parker of The Royal and Paul Aron of Mary Street Bakery, Tiny's and Panama Social have joined a host of small business coming together to encourage us to put the iso-trackies away and venture back into the city - whether for shopping, a mid-week dinner, a drink with a friend, or d) all of the above!

Andy Freeman, who is behind some of the city’s most iconic venues including The Flour Factory, Varnish on King, Hadiqa, Goody Two’s and Caballitos said hospitality owners were thrilled to see the State Government moving to Phase Four, allowing small businesses to return to kinda normal operations..

“Now is the perfect time for Perth locals to come back into the city to experience, explore and enjoy the atmosphere and unique offerings from our city based small businesses,” Andy said. 

John Parker who owns popular venues including The Standard, fleur and The Royal, said they’re starting to see some recovery but are calling on the community for their support to try to recreate the city atmosphere we all know and love.

The campaign is supported by other local business heroes Ryan Zaknich from Two Feet & a Heartbeat, Ed Wolkowinski from The Heritage Wine Bar, Johann Kim from Pigeonhole, Chantal Le Flohic from Chachi, Rebecca Const from Fox & Rabbit, Oliver McDonald from Oli, Daniel Bradshaw from Street X and Sue Lewis from Sue Lewis Chocolatier.
