Robina Fruit Market’s George and Tsambica (Sam) Manettas are the husband and wife duo behind one of the best greengrocers on the Gold Coast. They were awarded the Brisbane Produce Market’s Retailer of the Month for August.
Mr Manettas uses his 20 years of experience to buy the best fruit and vegetables from the Market, while Mrs Manettas is in control of marketing – handling display, customer service, point-of-sale and promotions for both stores.
They split their time between the four stores, but still allocate energy to new marketing ideas.
“We have developed a new website – www.earthmarkets.com.au which provides a great online presence and the e-newsletter enables us to get seasonal information and recipe suggestions directly to our customers,” said Mrs Manettas.
