Ferhan threw out the rulebook when strategising the concept of his small store. His diligent research ensured the best use of his 568 square feet of space. Finding simple solutions allowed him to incorporate food to go, including hot breakfast and made-to-order smoothies. Ferhan has also invested in technology, as well as Zapper and media screens. His counting machine has already greatly reduced mistakes when cashing up while the integration of a fingerprint clocking-in system cut down time spent on paperwork.
