GET FIXED BICYCLE REPAIR CAFE
Meals AND Wheels
Porirua’s Get Fixed Bicycle Cafe can feed you, fix your bike and even convert it to an electric beast.
Co-owner Angela Bendall (pictured left with co-owner Simon Bendall) says a recent growth spurt has meant they now run out of 8 converted containers on the edge of beautiful Porirua harbour and are opening a 2nd location in Brewtown, Upper Hutt.
“We’re really proud of our food menu. Our bagels, burgers & salads with lots of plant based options have people visiting from all over Wellington.
They’re also proud of their quality bike servicing and their focus on sustainability. Throw in their terrific community work, and these guys are the wheel deal.
Bureau de Change
Māia means brave. Being brave to take on the big ideas and support brave kaupapa.
Formed last year, the communications company has led messaging in some key campaigns.
One involved working with Māori energy retailer Nau Mai Rā to end power inequality in Aotearoa by taking on 10,000 customers.
Co-founder Mihi Blake (pictured right with co-founder Bee Stevenson) says another big win was MindTheGap.nz - compelling 55 large Kiwi businesses to report their pay gaps and Government commitment to prioritise pay gap transparency.
Māia also does pro bono work for charities. Whenever bravery and consciousness is required.
STRAIGHT FLUSH WAIRARAPA
Straight Flush Wairarapa is a plumbing phoenix story. It rose from the ashes of a struggling company, picked up the pieces, and had a bumper last year.
It’s a specialist firm that focuses on doing the stuff that needs doing right away, and when it comes to plumbing, that’s almost everything.
Now part of the Straight Flush Group, director Ngaire Mansfield (pictured) says the 390 per cent rise in revenue shows the company is thriving.
“It was a tough start but after 18 months things are humming and just get better each day.”
