Glasshouse Country and Maleny News is helping celebrate the incredible contribution our
local business owners make across the hinterland community every day.
During Small Business Month we are shining a light on some of those enterprises who, in their own words, write about the passion and dedication behind their ventures.
Locally owned Sunshine Coast Mowers has been recognised by John Deere with a national sales excellence award following an outstanding year of superior performance and brand representation involving dealer locations across Australia and New Zealand.
Owner Hayden Cook said he was thrilled to win the national award, particularly after stocking John Deere products just five years ago.
“I’m really proud of our team, we work really hard to develop great product knowledge and I have no doubt that our sales service is second to none. It’s great that a Sunshine Coast family-owned business which I run with my brother Gerard can compete on a national and international level and succeed.
“Over the past decade we’ve grown our business to three convenient locations in Mooloolaba, Kawana and Caloundra and we employ 25 local staff who are committed to personalised service for each and every customer,” Hayden said.
The former Mountain Creek High School students continue to contribute to their local community by sponsoring their former school’s AFL team, Buderim Pony Club, Give me 5 for Kids, Rotary Christmas appeal, the Maleny Rangers football team and major sponsorship of the Kawana soccer club’s Under 16’s Division 2 and Division 3 teams.
