We interviewed Chris, the owner of Semaphore BBQ Chickens in South Australia, our third ‘refer a friend’ winner of the $5,000 quarterly draw and an official Smartpay Ambassador. See what Chris had to say about Smartpay and the win below!
Congratulations on the win and welcome to the Smartpay Ambassador Program! Tell us a bit about yourself and Semaphore BBQ Chickens, SA.
I have been operating in this location for 6 years and had a store at Surrey Downs for 7yrs prior to that. We have a good size store right near the beach so see a lot of foot traffic, especially in summer. We sell a range of hot chickens, homemade fresh salads, seafood, hot chips, schnitzel and chicken packs.
What made you recommend Smartpay and make the referral?
My friend Johnny took over the Surrey Chicken & Takeaway shop and we got talking one day and I told him to check out Smartpay for EFTPOS. I love that nothing is taken out of your account as a bill at the end of the month where I was paying $600-$700 p/month to my bank prior to switching. That amount of money per month is a huge saving!
How do you feel about being the lucky winner? Any ideas on how you might spend the $5,000?
Rather than the business I think I might treat myself for once and buy a few items, maybe some new clothes! Thanks again Smartpay, I am glad I made that referral and Johnny I am sure will be just as excited with the $1,000 win!
