Dave Elliott, the owner of two Pizza Capers pizzerias, says…
In July 2006 I stepped away from 31 years in the Civil Engineering Construction Industry and previous to that I served 10 years in the Royal Navy.
I was taking a sabbatical from work and donating my time to assisting the Coastguard at Manly Harbour in Queensland where I had been volunteering for quite a few years on the weekends.
In the course of a conversation with a close relative, the subject of a Pizza Capers Franchise came up and I was asked if I would be interested in looking at investing in a franchise in the emerging QSR’s (Quick Service Restaurants) industry.
The rest is history from April 2007 on wards when I opened Pizza Capers at Manly West. A few years later in February 2010 I opened another Pizza Capers at Wynnum.
It has been both a challenging and rewarding venture. I have always been involved with the younger generation having been a professional soccer goalkeeper both in the UK and Queensland. That eventually led me into coaching the children, ladies and men’s teams over many years.
Entering into the Quick Service Restaurant industry has kept that involvement in being hands on with the emerging and changing market trends which all of my young employees embrace enthusiastically.
The Quick Service Restaurant industry runs on all of the latest state-of-the-art technology so when a business associate mentioned cryptocurrency, I was very interested.
Our problem was that Bitcoin is too volatile for us so we decided to go with a stable coin called BankCoin Reserve. It will lead us into the future with Blockchain technology as a method of payment and a store of value.
Just yesterday, we received authorization to accept Bankcoin Reserve from our customers for both my stores. This corporate approval to accept Bankcoin Reserve opens the door for all Pizza Capers 110+ Franchises to accept Bankcoin Reserve.
