Friendly Gong For Taste Of Brazil
Brazilian restaurant Taste of Brazil has been named as the friendliest business in Dublin for 2014.
The JCI Dublin Friendly Business Award competition, run in collaboration with Dublin Chamber of Commerce, identified businesses that provide an outstanding service to their customers and their community at large.
Taste of Brazil, located in Temple Bar, beat off competition from more than 40 other companies to win the award, which was presented to the restaurant's manager, Renato Figueiredo, at an awards show at The Mansion House recently.
Six finalists were chosen for the awards, following a nomination process that began in June. Firms were judged by a team of mystery shoppers who evaluated the business using scorecards.
According to Gina Quin, chief executive of Dublin Chamber of Commerce: “It is hugely important to recognise the excellent customer service provided by Dublin businesses. Business owners and their employees are some of the city's most important ambassadors.”
Quin adds: “The impression given by people who work in our shops, restaurants, cafes, hotels and tourist attractions will often be what the visitor will take away from Ireland.”
Julien Gay-de-Montella, president of JCI Dublin says that the business awards aim to reward businesses that go the extra mile for customers.
“It is particularly important in the current economic environment to highlight businesses that don't allow their standards to slip and continue to provide quality services.”
The competition was judged on criteria that included customer care, digital experience, eco-friendliness and shop layout. (August 21014)
