Operated by Daniele and Orly Del Castillo, the couple opened the bakery two years ago specialising in sourdough artisan bread, European pastries and cannoli. Mr Del Castillo was formerly a profes- sional photographer working in Italy while Mrs Del Castillo was a graphic designer spe- cialising in fashion and also working in Italy.

After 15 years operating as George Brand Terrigal-Toukley, Andre and Samantha Kubecka are re-launching their real estate business as Brand Property and exiting the George Brand Real Estate Group. Mr Kubecka said that during the COVID-19 pandemic when local agencies were forced to lay off employees, Brand Property were actually in a position to employ extra staff to help service their growing business. “Our business has doubled in size over the past four years and during the COVID- 19 while a some of our competitors shut up shop, our staff worked throughout the pandemic.” Mr Kubecka said. Mr and Mrs Kubecka said that re-brand- ing was all about wanting the outside of their business to reflect what they look & feel like on the inside – an innovative, pros- perous and forward-thinking company with a great culture. While they have thrived with the support of their previous franchise group, they now feel that they need to keep up with the industry by presenting something fresh, new and exciting. Working with newly appointed General Manager Andrew Lane and Menace Group -Marketing. Digital.Social’s Kevin Spiteri, the Kubeckas have developed their vision of a smart, progressive and independent real estate brand that is modern, minimal and reflective of the growing and chang- ing needs of the property market on the Central Coast.
